Post  Waqar Daniel on Tue 10 Jul 2007, 10:49 pm



Who were Pharaohs?

They were the king or Queen of Egypt. They were the head of the government and high priest of every temple.The people of Egypt considered the pharaoh to be a half-man, half-god. The pharaoh owned all of Egypt.

Which god did the people think their Pharaoh was?

The Ancient Egyptians believed that their Pharaoh was the god Horus, son of Re, the sun god. When a pharaoh died he was believed to be united with the sun and then a new Horus ruled on earth.

How many wives did a Pharaoh have?

Pharaohs often had several wives but only one was queen.

Who was the first Pharaoh of Egypt?

The first true pharaoh of Egypt was Narmer (sometimes called Menes), who united Lower Egypt and Upper Egypt. He was the first king of the First Dynasty, the beginning of the Old Kingdom.

Pharaoh's Role

The Pharaoh had an important role in Ancient Egyptian life. Pharaohs,to Egyptians, were believed to be gods. The Pharaoh means great house and originally referred to the palace. In early Ancient Egypt, there were two Pharoahs, one that ruled the upper Egypt and one that ruled the lower Egypt. King Menes, Pharaoh of Upper Egypt, conquered the king of lower Egypt. A Pharaoh's life isn't all easy, Pharaohs often went to war to protect their land. If the Pharaoh won, the challenger would offer him goods or parts of his land.

I agree with you planet_shakers. This is an excellent information and we need to know about era in which certain incidents of the Bible took place. Like Moses and Pharaoh, why Pharaoh turned against God. The answer I get from this post is that Pharaohs were considered as gods themselves. God bless this website, which keeps us informed
