Salitis was the 1st king of the 15th Dynasty. Northern Egypt was under Heksus rulers througho ut the Dynasty. The Heksus are the Asiatics that invaded through Sinai and settled in the Del ta.
The Heksus controlled all the Nile Delta and Northern Egypt. By time, they got more powerfu l and set their own Dynasties ( from the 14th till the end of the 16th Dynasty).
Some scholars mentione Salitis's name as "Sultan". This is an Arabic translation of the phras e 'powerful king' because the king was considered to be the founder of the Great Heksus Dynas ty. Salitis captured Memphis and placed himself in higher rank than any of the royal familie s in the Capitol.
