Call it the land of pharaohs or the land of gods, the land of Mummy’s or the land of Pyramids, Egypt is home to world’s earliest known civilization. A startling history that goes back to tenth millennium BC, the country is drenched in rich heritage that presages the earliest known developments. Fondly known as the crusaders of the modern world, what if Egypt did not have leaders that lived for the cause of advancement and progress? Would the world still be the same? Would life and living be as it is today? Calendars, toothpaste, board games, eye-makeup, breath mints that have become a part of our world wouldn’t have been possible if Egyptian leaders did not allow for the same. The country has been home to some of finest and skilled leaders whether it was Baybars I of the 13th century or Ismail Pasha of the 19th century. Fuad I or Ahmed Fuad Pasha was the first king of modern Egypt who ruled from 1922 until 1936 and was succeeded by Farouk, King of Egypt. Abdel Fattah el-Sisi is the current president of Egypt. Read through this section and get details about the life and works of famous Egyptian leaders.
