Ahmose I is generally considered to be the Pharaoh who conquered and expelled the Hyksos from Egypt in the beginning of the 18th dynasty, though in his father's and grandfather's reign during the 17th dynasty the ancient Egyptians began rebelling against Hyksos rule in Thebes in Lower Egypt.

When did the hyksos attack ancient Egypt?

THe Hyksos (hieroglyphs Hqa.xAswt = rulers of foreign hill countries/foreign lands) were most likely Semitic people from Canaan and Syria since their kings had typically Semitic names. They only conquered northern and central Egypt, never extending their rule into Upper (southern) Egypt.No definite date for their invasion of Egypt is known and scholars are not even agreed on whether this was a single, sudden invasion or a gradual migration of Semitic people into Egypt (very much like the gradual Saxon migrations to England in the 5th/6th/7th centuries AD). All that is known for certain is that the first of the Hyksos kings was in place during a major period of trouble and turmoil in Egypt, known as the Second Intermediate Period.The first dated Hyksos names of established kings are from around 1620 BC, but they must have arrived prior to that date.
