Pharaohs of Ancient Egypt


There were many pharaohs that ruled in ancient Egypt and all tried to leave an eternal legacy.  Of the many mighty pharaohs that ruled, only a few have actually accomplished such a goal.   Those that have achieved the status have done so through luck as most the tombs have been destroyed or robbed.   These unfortunate circumstances  have left many holes into Egyptian history, life, and culture—now we can only image how a pharaoh and his people must have lived together in Ancient Egypt.
