King Khufu's Strengths during his reign
King Khufu had one very good strength during his time as ruler. King Khufu was very intelligent and had architectural experience. He built the Great Pyramid of Giza, which is the largest Pyramid in the world, standing at around 400 feet high.
King Khufu's Weaknesses
King Khufu had two weaknesses, his age and cruelty as king. King Khufu was 20 years old when he came to the throne. His age is a weakness because he was not as wise or as experienced as other rulers.
King Khufu Inspiration on Egyptians
When King Khufu made his pyramid, he inspired other egyptians to try and make their own pyramids. These pyramids were definitely not as successful as King Khufu's Great Pyramid at Giza.
Legend has it that King Khufu made people work for him but graffiti on cave walls shows that workers were "friends of Khufu." This made people believe that King Khufu paid the workers for their labor.
