Enemies and Allies

During the battle of Kadesh, Ramses valiantly tried to attack the Important strategical city. Sadly, his men all deserted him, leaving him to fend for himself. This is what he said about that battle:

"not one of my princes, of my chief men and my great,
Was with me, not a captain, not a knight;
For my warriors and chariots had left me to my fate,
Not one was there to take his part in fight.
........
Here I stand,
All alone;
There is no one at my side,
My warriors and chariots afeared,
Have deserted me, none heard
My voice, when to the cravens I, their king, for succor, cried.
But I find that Ammon's grace
Is better far to me
Than a million fighting men and ten thousand chariots be."


Proving that no one was "by his side".
