The Pharaohs

The Pharaohs, Quercus 2009.

The Pharaohs traces the history of Egypt’s kings from the unification of Upper and Lower Egypt, through the pyramid-building era of the Old Kingdom and the imperial expansion of the New Kingdom, to the period of decline and invasion that culminated in Egypt’s annexation by the Roman Empire in 30 BC. It offers compelling profiles of such rulers as the pyramid-building Khufu, the Theban pharaoh Montuhotep II, the female pharaoh Hatshepsut, the warrior pharaohs Tuthmosis III and Ramesses II and the “heretic pharaoh” Akhenaten.
