Pinedjem I was the High Priest of Amun at Thebes in Ancient Egypt from c. 1070 to 1032 BC (Grimal) and de facto ruler of the south of the country. Inheriting a powerbase at Thebes from his father Piankh, Pinedjem strengthened his grip on large swaths of Egyptian territory at the expense of the feeble Twenty-first Dynasty based at Tanis. He married Henuttawy, a daughter of Ramesses XI, to cement his relations with the other powerful families of the period. His son became Psusennes I, Pharaoh at Tanis, thus erasing at a stroke the gap between the two families. In practice the 21st dynasty and their high priests were never very far apart.
