Osorkon ruled for a long time during this period, and his reign was marked by economic stability. He continued to rule a united Egypt, and also continued the scheme of his father to consolidate political power within the royal family. THree of his sons held power in Thebes as High Priest of Amun. He may also have been co-regent with Sheshonq II before his ton Takelot took the throne.
Also during his reign, the role of "Divine Adorer of Amun" , the highest-ranking woman priest of Amun, was initiated in Thebes.
Osorkon is responsible for building in Bubastis, Memphis, Atfih, El-Hibe, and Abydos, although little else remains from his reign.
