The Seventeenth Dynasty co-existed with the Fifteenth and Sixteenth.  They were a collection of Theban nobles who exerted some limited control over the surrounding area, but who for the most part were under the subjugation of the Hyksos.  This situation would change under the rules of Tao II and his son Kamose, who would organize resistance culminating in the defeat of the Hyksos, the reunion of Upper and Lower Egypt, and the end of the Second Intermediate Period.
