Transcript of Pharaohs
Khufu was best known for building The Great Pyramid, one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. Khufu was also said to be incredibly cruel, sometimes forcing his daughter into prostitution if he did not have enough money. His only statue is the smallest piece of Egyptian royal sculpture ever discovered.
Pharaohs were the rulers of Egypt. They were lords of the land and the political and spiritual leaders of the Egyptian people. The ancient Egyptians believed that their Pharaoh was the son of Ra, the sun god. Pharaohs were also expected to become gods in the after life. Pharaohs were also assumed to be gods in human form.
Levels of Class
King Tut became famous after his death because his tomb was robbed more recently than other tombs. He was only 8 or 9 when he became the ruler of Egypt, making him the youngest ruling pharaoh ever recorded. This made him famous in addition to his tomb being found in 1922.
Amenhotep III became king at about the age of 12. Under his rule, Egypt became very prosperous and rich. Amenhotep III found new ways to mine gold and gems resulting in wealth for the people and himself.
Cleopatra was queen of ancient Egypt and one of the most famous female rulers of all time.
Her love triangle with Marc Antony and Julius Caesar was one of the most famous love stories and inspired an epidemic of movies, books, and even a play by William Shakespeare.
Cleopatra held together Egypt during a time of inner and outer turmoil and she did as well as any other male leader could.
Pharaohs had many important jobs. They had to make laws, collect taxes, defend Egypt against foreigners, and own land. Pharaohs were also spiritual leaders. They performed rituals to ask for things, such as fertile soil from the Nile. Pharaohs also conquered different lands at times, so their duties would be extended to other places.
