Talk of Egypt and the first thing that strikes the mind are the Pharaohs and their Pyramids. Popularly known as the gift of Nile, Egypt has had a flourishing history that dates back to 3000 BC. Then, in ancient Egypt, Pharaohs ruled the Egyptian kingdom. They were mostly considered God kings and were revered as divine deities. Interestingly, as much as the Pharaohs intended to keep the throne within the family through marriage and intermarriage, the line of kingship shifted hands numerous times creating a dynamic history of the Pharaohs of Egypt. It is speculated that in the three thousand years of history, Egypt had as many as thirty dynasties with more than 170 Pharaohs reining the kingdom. While some of their rules were interrupted by murder, there were many who mysteriously disappeared and still others whose reign was marred by mayhem. However, of these only some are remembered and revered till date primarily for their works and deeds including Tutankhamun, Cleopatra VII, Ramses II, Ramses III, Hatshepsut, Akhenaten, Khufu, and Djoser. Find out more about Egyptian emperors and kings with this segment. Read on to know more about their life, works and contribution to Egyptian history and civilizations.
