'concise accounnt of the life and times of the more significant occupants of the Egyptian throne.'
This book presents a concise account of the lives and times of some of the more significant occupants of the Egyptian throne, from the unification of the country around 3000 B.C. down to the extinction of native rule just under three millennia later. Some, such as Tuthmosis III, had a major impact on their time, and were remembered by their own people until the very civilization collapsed. Others, such as Tutankhamun, were soon forgotten by the Egyptians themselves, only to burst into popular culture thousands of years after their deaths, as a result of the labors of modern archeologists. Still more remain unknown outside the small circle of prefessional archeologists, but led lives that call out for wider categories, in an attempt to present a balanced view of Egyptian kinds and their range of achievements.
This book contains detailed information on each known pharaoh of ancient Egypt-well as much as we know so far! A wealth of information as well as a time line of who ruled when.
