The Late Period of Ancient Egypt refers to the last flowering of native Egyptian rulers after the Third Intermediate Period and before the Persian conquests.

It is often dismissed as the last gasp of a once great culture, where the power of Egypt had diminished.

Twenty-Eighth - Thirtieth Dynasties

The Twenty-eighth Dynasty consisted of a single king, Amyrtaeus, prince of Sais, who rebelled against the Persians. He left no monuments with his name.
