Background

The Twenty-Eighth Dynasty of Egypt, also spelled as the 28th Dynasty or Dynasty XXVIII was a short lived dynasty during the Late Period of Egypt where a descendent from the Saite kings of the Twenty-Sixth Dynasty briefly claimed rule. Following the death of Darius II an Egyptian named Amyrtaeus led a native revolt against the Achaemenid satrap and ultimately reclaimed Egypt and collapsing the Twenty-Seventh Dynasty. Amyrtaeus only led Egypt briefly and there have been no monuments uncovered and little else is known about this short lived dynasty.
