About PharaohsWhen we think of Ancient Egypt, an array of images spring to mind: pyramids, mummies, hieroglyphics, sacred animals, the Nile and much more. But at the centre of this iconic civilisation were its people; in particular its monarchs. Ancient Egypt spanned more than 2,000 years and was ruled by approximately 170 pharaohs. Believed to be the mediator between the gods and the world of men, the pharaoh would pass on his sacred powers to the new pharaoh after death, and would become divine. But what was everyday life like for these all-powerful rulers? What responsibilities did they have, and how did religion and politics both unite and divide a nation? From the dynasties of the Old Kingdom to the rise and fall of individual leaders, delve into the extraordinary world of these fascinating beings, unearthing the secrets, sacrifices and sarcophagi of Ancient Egypt’s mysterious rulers.
