i need to assess the role of the "warrior pharaoh" image in New Kingdom Egypt and i need some primary sources for evidence of my argument which is:

the image of the warrior pharaoh was used to maintain Maat by controling other countries and defeating them in battle

i have plenty of secodnary sources but i need a primary source, preferably something i can print out like a picture of an inscription or something becuse i need to hand in my sources

Not too sure if I can help, however, here's a passage from NSW HSC ONLINE:

Prior to the period of the New Kingdom northern Egypt was ruled by the Hyksos while southern Egypt was ruled by local Egyptian rulers. It was Ahmose who successfully rid Egypt of the Hyksos. Once the expulsion of the Hyksos took place it became the task of each pharaoh to ensure that such an invasion would never occur again. Each pharaoh had his own method of establishing and maintaining control. In their endeavour to maintain ma’at (truth) the pharaohs began to change the nature of the Egyptian state. These pharaohs set Egypt gradually, but not entirely by design, on a course of imperial expansion and firmly established the image of the “warrior pharaoh”. By looking at the tasks facing each of the first fhree pharaohs of New Kingdom Egypt and their policies, we can see how they transformed New Kingdom Egypt.

I also found some sites u can check out:

Just from researching your question, I assume Thut. the III was the most important "warrior pharaoh".

I didn't do Egypt for my HSC, hence why i'm not so sure of your question. However, i did a google search and found those websites. I don't know how good they are to you, but I hoped I've helped! :)

there are tomb pictures of pharoah on chariots supporting the idea he was a warrior.
also pictures of pharoah hunting assist this. Look at tomb pictures!!!!

have you considered taking a slightly different angle and looking at hatshepsut? think of how important the warroir pharaoh must have been for her to have taken the actions that she did and then for the damnatio memorae to have followed. for primary sources try her statues (especially those showing change from female to male) and the speech of pakhet.

also, if you're going 2 talk about the need for the warrior pharaoh to maintain Ma'at, you might also like to think about what sort of things could prove a violation of the balance. for example, why was nubia kept under tighter control than Libya or Retennu?

oh, and a good primary source for Thutmosis III is the Hymn of Victory Stelae - 6ft black granite slab with over 25 lines showing Th III in the form of whatever would terrify his enemies most - eg. red hot ball (like sun) for Libyans - note that all different countries are shown in terror of him and submission to Egypt whether or not they actually ever fought.

oh yeah...theres also good primary source inscriptions, at Karnak i think, which say how Amenhotep II clubbed 7 princes to death at the base of a statue of Amun and then hung them: one on the prow of his boat when he sailed to Buhen and the others on palace gates as a warning to Retennu and Nubia on the mercilessness of Egypt to hostiles.
