King Nastasen, the latest hero portrait for the Kushites, by Sundiata (Malcolm Quartey).

Nastasen Ankhkhare was a late Napatan Period ruler of the Kingdom of Kush (Sudan), ruled c. 335 B.C. - 315/310 B.C. He is noted for defeating an Upper Egyptian invasion of Kush by Khabbash "taking many fine boats" and putting down many rebellions, thereby consolidating King Harsiotef's earlier conquests.
