one of the earliest international peace treaties
Favorite thing: KADESH TREATY
The Hittitians and the Ancient Egyptians, They came face to face in the famous Battle of Khadesh on the Orontes (near Homs in Syria) in ca.1274 BC, the army of the Great King Muwattalli II pitched against that of the Pharaoh Ramses II. The battle ended in a draw, and in the development of a relationship between the two lands that led within a few years to a peace treaty which staunchly endured throughout the rest of the Hittite Empire period.
Fondest memory: (In the New York Headquarters of the United Nations an enlarged copy of a clay tablet from Hattusha setting out the conditions of the agreement hangs on the wall as an example of one of the earliest international peace treaties in the world.)
Also you can see this battle on the walls of some temples in Egypt.Related to:
