Prince of Sais in years 740-727 BC. During a few years he succeeded to unify almost all nomes of the Delta, thus he became more powerful ruler than any o the XXII and XXIII dynasties kings. He headed the coalition of princes of Delta (Osorkon IV, Iuput II, Sheshonq V) and attacked Hermopolis remaining under Nimlot (4) rule, with whom he finally made alliance. After failed to conquer Thebaida and Herakleopolis he escaped from Piankhi and found refuge in swamps of Nile delta. He adopted royal title in 727 BC after compelling Kushites to retreat and subsequently he consolidated his rule after Piankchi’s retreat to Napata.
