Thutmose II. was the son of a famous and powerful king Thutmose I. and his minor wife Mutnofret. He definitely wasn't as powerful ruler as his predecessor Thutmose I. or subsequent king Thutmose III. He wasn't able to keep together the huge empire inherited after his father.
Under Thutmose II. rule there were continual revolts in the areas subjugated by Thutmose I., which had to be suppressed by the army. But these fights mostly ended with withdrawal of Egyptian soldieries.
These failures and his evident weakness Thutmose II. compensated with cruelty. A proof of his cruelty is a sign from the time of his reign that was preserved in a rock near Aswan. The sign contains an order to his soldiery in Nubia to massacre all local men except a little son of to ruler, whom he wanted to kill by himself. When Thutmose II was defeated by disaffected local kings in Asia, he let atack the soldieries to nomadic tribes that he killed off and enslaved. But Thutmose II. was frail, so he didn't take part in most crusades.
Tomb of Thutmose II.
Thutmose II. let build himself a tomb in the Valley of the Kings, but it wasn't surely identified. His mummy was found in a hideaway - the priestly kings of the 21st dynasty let transfer there all mummies of former Egyptian Pharaohs from the tombs in the Valley of the Kings to protect them from tomb raiders.
