Thank you for this link, which helps me to understand some of Rohl's
thinking although it is obviously not his latest version. I see he takes
Rameses IV-VIII as successive co-regents of Rameses III, and Rameses XI
also as a co-regent - or perhaps a rival.
The main change from this link to "From Eden to Exile" seems to be a
compression of the late 19th dynasty, which is acheived mostly by
cutting out a separate reign for Seti II and making him a co-ruler with
Amenmesse. But this does seem to conflict a bit with Rohl's old "HD"
data (highest attested regnal year?)
