The kings of the XIXth Dynasty generally restricted their major public works to the southern Delta; even their northern residence in Memphis was south of the Delta. The last king of the dynasty, Horemheb (1347–c. 1318 on the high chronology), was the first to undertake a project at Avaris. Seti I (c. 1316–1304 B.C.E.) installed a palace at Avaris/Per-Ramses. But his son, Ramesses II, transferred the capital to this site.
