 Chancellor Bay - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In Egyptian folklore, he is reputed to have seduced the Egyptian Queen Twosret.
As the most powerful palace official during Seti II and Siptah's reigns, he once boasted that he "established the king [Siptah] on the throne of his father." Bay was later derisively called "Iarsu/Irsu" or "a Self-Made Man" in the Great Harris Papyrus or Papyrus Harris I.
However, the prime beneficiary of his death appears to be Twosret, who assumed the throne without opposition a year later when Siptah died.

This date is only 3 months removed from Twosret's Highest known date of Year 8, III Peret 5 and is based upon a calculation of Ramesses III's known Accession date of I Shemu 26.
While his reign was brief, it was just long enough for him to stabilize the political situation in Egypt, and to establish his son, Rameses III onto the throne of Egypt.
Setnakhte's origins are not known, and he may have been a commoner, although some Egyptologists believe that he was related to the previous dynasty, the Nineteenth, through his mother and may thus have been a grand-son of Ramesses II.
