Burial Place
Rock cut Tomb in Thebes, Valley of the Kings KV 1

Other than his burial place, we know nothing about the seventh Ramesses. He ruled for about seven years, during a period of serious economic hardship. He had no known sons to succeed him.

Tomb KV1 in the Valley of the Kings is attributed to him, although no mummy found in the tomb can be identified as him. The tomb has been open for centuries and contains Greek and Roman graffiti. It was reopened in 1995 after extensive restoration, which restored the tomb to its bright colors. However, it isn't visited much due to the damage of being open for so long.
