The Hyksos rule of Egypt ended because Ahmose seized power and conquerred Egypt and threw out the Hyksos. Actually, their rule ended because they lost the ability to run and empire.

No accounts survive recording the history of the period from the Hyksos perspective, only that of the native Egyptians who evicted the occupiers. However, conversely, the use of Egyptian names and symbols in the hieroglyphics of later Hyksos rulers indicates that the Hyksos considered themselves relatively…
