76 Second Intermediate Period By the middle of the 13th dynasty the unity of the Two Lands began to fall apart and Asiatic peoples moved into the Delta to became its rulers. These people were known as Hyksos Rulers of Foreign Lands Political confusion was the norm during the Second Intermediate Period. Hyksos kings controlled the Delta during the 15th dynasty, while at the same time priests and local rulers in the south comprised the 16th dynasty. Resistance to the Hyksos rule began to grow during the 17th dynasty at Thebes and came to warfare by the time of that dynasty s last king, Kamose. His successor, Ahmose, completed the expulsion of the Hyksos.
