Almost nothing is known about Ramesses X except a few brief references in the Temple of Karnak. He ruled for only a few years and during his reign workers went on strike due to lack of wages during his time on the throne.
He left a tome in the Valley of the Kings, KV 18. The tomb is unfinished, and since the tomb has been open since the 18th century, no funerary material is known. The entrance is extremely wide, and the lack of interesting contents (and damage from flooding) made the tomb a good choice for the installation of the electrical lighting equipment for the Valley of the Kings in 1904. The walls were whitewashed and a platform and roofing added.
