How many rulers of Egypt were there?
The Kings of Egypt were not called Pharaohs by the ancient Egyptians. This word was used by the Greeks and Hebrews, and today is commonly used for the ancient Kings of Egypt. We really do not know how many kings ruled in Egypt, for at times in its ancient past the country was split up, and there were at least several kings at the same time. There was also probably kings who ruled regions of Egypt before recorded history, and in fact, several ancient historians record legendary Pharaohs who became Egyptian gods.

She was wife of the king between 1370 BC and 1330 BC, although she never ruled Egypt in her own right, not that we know of anywhere.
The first "known" ruler of Egypt after Upper & Lower Egypt is Narmer c. 3150 BC. Narmer is believer to be the same person as Menes and to have unified Upper & Lower Egypt. This was in the Archaic period and start of the First Dynasty of Egypt.
Since i dont know ALL of them...il name a few of my favorites and some of the most famous. Queen Hatshepsut. King Tutankhamen (or King Tut). Ramses II (or Ramses the Great). Queen Nefertiti. King Seti I. Queen Cleopatra. Well I hope that helped!
she was 18 when she became ruler of egypt, and died at the age of 40 from commiting sucicide with a cobra snake.. Not a cobra but an asp snake.
At current archaeologists believe that Narmer was the first pharaoh in Egypt. Some however think that there was possibly a ruler before Narmer. The first might also by Ramses the 2nd.
the last ruler of egypt was queen cleoparta.But they gotinvaded by the romans who knows what happend after that.
King Tut, or Tutankhamun, was the youngest pharaoh to rule Egypt.He was a boy king, living only to 11 years of age. His body wasdiscovered in the 1920s, and was exhibited all over the world as acuriosity.
They had a theocracy.This means they believed that the pharaohs were their gods and were the main reason they had life and peace.
In my thought,I think Ramese the great is one of the best rulers and/or king tut
archaeologist believe it is The Narmer Palette, also known as the Great Hierakonpolis Palette or the Palette of Narmer , but they are not sure it is hard to tell because it was thousands years ago sorry hope this helps. Narmer, Menes, or the 'Scorpion King'.
no, Tut was.(9 years old when he was forced to take the throne after his older brother0
King menes Probably i mean he re-united ancient Egypt and brought them back to glory all the other rulers didnt do anything but build pyramids for themselfs and cause wars and suffering.
Yes! He ruled in the New Kingdom, 18th dynasty and between 1323 BC- 1333 BC. He became ruler at 9 as his father died when he was 5. Tutankhamun was heir to the throne. He died at 18, (he was already married) because of an infection in the leg.
yes but it is known that Cleopatra`s other sister sibling ruled before her but were executed for overthrowing their father.
750BC is part of the Third intermediate period where there is confusion over who really ruled Egypt. Towards the end of the period from 724-712BC the principal sovereigns were: Tefnakhte and Bochoris. then followed the Late Period which lasted from 712BC to 332BC with two overlapping dynasties:. T…he 25th 712-657BC the principle rulers here were Nubians: Kashta, Piye, Shabaka and Taharqa. the 26th 664-525BC : Necho I, Psammetichus, Necho II, Apries, Amasis, and Psammetichus III. In 525BC the Persians took control of Egypt. I hope this will help (MORE)
I suppose it would have been Cleopatra VII (51-30 b.c) as she was the last ruler before Egypt was annexed by the Roman Empire; although she was of Greek descent, making Nectanebo II (360-343 b.c) the last actual native Egyptian to become pharoah.
Egypt was at one time ruled by Pharoahs, but currently is ruled by a President.
Horus is a Egyptian god, not a actual person - he never ruled Egypt save as the living Pharaoh.
The rulers of ancient Egypt, Pharaohs, were almost all men,but there are a few women who were either actually Pharaohs, oreffectively were - and ruled ancient Egypt. Those believed to havebeen female rulers are: . Cleopatra VII - Became Pharaoh when she was about 17 years old.She had no son at t…he time; she married a much younger brother.There is no known to female Pharaoh in Egypt for more than amillennium before Cleopatra. She is the one who is famous for herliasons with the Romans Mark Antony and Julius Caesar. Cleopatratried to keep Egypt's independence during a time of Romandomination by allying herself romantically, matrimonially, andmilitarily with these Roman commanders. She had a son, Caesarion,supposed to be fathered by Julius Caesar, for whom she wasregent. . Cleopatra I - Consort of Ptolemy V Epiphanes of Egypt. Theywere married in 193 BCE and, because the Ptolemy tradition was forthe ruler to marry his sister, she was given the title of sister.Ptolemy appointed her as vizier in 187. Ptolemy V died in 180 BCE,with his son by Cleopatra I his heir -- and so Cleopatra I wasappointed regent for her son, and ruled as sole ruler untilher son came of age. . Tausret (Twosret, Tausert, Tawosret) - Chief wife of Seti II.When Seti II died, Tausret served as regent for his son,Siptah (Rameses-Siptah, renamed at some point Menenptah Siptah).Siptah was likely the son of Seti II and a minor wife, so Tausretwas his stepmother. There is some indication that Siptal may havehad some disability. He died about six years into his reign, andTausret seems to have served as Pharaoh for two to fouryears, using kingly titles for herself. . Nefertiti - May have ruled after the death of her husband,Akhenaton. This is based on the theory that she assumed the nameSmenkhkare after his death. Even if she did not rule, during herhusband's reign she was accorded more honor than usual for a GreatWife, and is sometimes depicted as a co-equal officiant atceremonies. . Hatshepsut (Maatkare) - Widow of Thutmosis II, she ruled firstas regent for his minor stepson and heir, and then as Pharaoh . Her titles include "King of Upper and Lower Egypt,Maatkare, Daughter of Re."She is depicted in a fake beard and withthe objects that a Pharaoh is usually depicted with, and in maleattire, after a few years of ruling in female form. . Ahmose-Nefertari - Served as co-regent during her son'sminority and co-regent with her grandson Thuthmosis I during hisminority. . Ashotep - Mother of the founder of the 18th Dynasty and NewKingdom, Ahmose I, himself the pharaoh who defeated the Hyksos(foreign rulers of Egypt). Ahmose I credited her in an inscriptionwith holding the nation together during his minority, when sheseems to have been regent for her son. . Sobeknefru (Neferusobek or Nefrusobek or Sebek-Nefru -Meryetre) - Ruled Egypt for a few years. She was the daughter ofAmenemhet III and half-sister of Amenemhet IV and, perhaps, alsohis wife. She claimed to have been co-regent with her father. Shewas depicted in female clothing but wearing male objects related tokingship, and was sometimes referred to in terms using the malegender, perhaps to reinforce her role as Pharaoh. . Neithhikret (Nitocris or Neith-Iquerti or Nitokerty) - Knownonly through a story in Herodotus and several brief mentions of hername elsewhere, but there is no other historical or archaeologicalevidence for her existence, much less ruler-ship. She is mentionedon one king list (Turin) and not another (Abydos). . Ankhnesmeryre II or Ankhesenpepe II or Ankh-Meri-Ra - May haveserved as regent for her son, Pepi II, who was about six when heassumed the throne when Pepi I (her husband, his father) died. . Wife of Djedkare-Izezi - In the 1950s, a mortuary temple wasexcavated, though the excavation remains unpublished. Reportedly,royal insignia were found related to the wife of Djedkare-Izezi.She may have had no son and ruled as king. But the temple wasdestroyed so completely that the details are not clear, and hername cannot even be identified. . Khentkaus - Characterized in an inscription as the mother of"Two Kings of Upper and Lower Egypt," presumably Sahure andNeferirke, Fifth Dynasty. She may have served as a regent for atime. In an inscription she may have a kingly title -- but theremay have been two women of the same name, and a later regent of thesame name may be confused with the earlier queen, their storiesconflated. . Nimaethap (Ni-Maat-Heb) - Identified as "King's Mother" ofDjoser, who was probably the second king of the Third Dynasty, thebuilder of the step pyramid at Saqqara. She may have served asregent for him. . Meryt-Neith or Merytneith or Merneith - Buried with honorsusually used for kings including a boat to travel to the nextworld, and her name is found on a seal with the names of otherFirst Dynasty Pharaohs. But on that seal, her symbol is that of aKing's Mother and the other names have the sign of Horus, for aPharaoh. (MORE)
Because she helped to contribute to the advancement of Egyptian currency and she was the only Ptolemic ruler that spoke the Egyptian language. And she was able to create alliances with other countries to help her settle disputes in Egypt.

There is no tangible evidence that Moses as we know the story ever lead anyone or even existed. The Story of Moses was taken from the life story of Ahmose I, the first Pharaoh of the 18th dynasty in Egypt. ISRAEL is a clue, it's a combination of Egyptian names of deities. Isis (IS) - Amen RA (RA) - …EL the unseen on moved creator (EL). ISRAEL. (MORE)
In Ancient Egypt, the rulers had more authority than most rulershave today for a variety of reasons. The most important reason,however, is this quite simple one: the Egyptian rulers wereconsidered to be divine; that is, they were considered to be somekind of god (or goddess), and thus they occupied …a much higherposition in life than the rest of the Egyptians, who were "mere"mortals.

It was a monarchy of mostly kings with the exception of a few solo female rulers. It became a part of the Roman Empire with the conquest of Alexandria and the deaths of Cleopatra and Antony

It depends upon the culture which looks on other cultures rulers; to their own society a "evil ruler" might be hailed a hero.
this is because they had confidence in themselves because they knew that their leader was brave. --A-- scotty mccreery rocks this is proof that i wrote this mrs.bond
Hatshesput is one, who was the longest reigning female Pharaoh. She's not mentioned very much because she never really had the fame of being the last pharaoh to rule Egypt... Cleopatra, the latter mentioned, was also a powerful and influential ruler of Egypt, making alliances with Marc Antony and …Julius Caesar before Caesar was killed in the now famous assassination. Cleopatra later committed suicide when Marc Antony lost to Augustus, or Octavianus Caesar, just in case you were wondering. (MORE)

An ancient Egyptian Ruler was known as a Pharaoh. The only God that I can think of that was a Pharaoh and a God was Osiris, the original god of farming.
It depends upon what period of history you are talking about. In ancient times, the pharoahs were absolute monarchs. Then Egypt became a province in a number of empires: Persian, Greek, Roman, Byzantine, Arabian and Ottoman. Finally it developed its own Caliphate, the Fatimids. That came to an end a…t the end of the First World War, and Egypt became a British protectorate. In the 1950's Col. Nasser was a military dictator who took control of the country. The country has not moved far from military dictatorship since, although their constitution has become more representative. And since the Arab spring, Egypt seems to be moving toward a truly representative democracy. (MORE)

Yes she was. Hatshepsut was the daughter of Thutmose I and hisprimary wife Ahmes. Her husband Thutmose II was the son of ThutmoseI and a secondary wife named Mutneferet, who carried the titleKing's daughter and was probably a child of Ahmose I. Hatshepsutand Thutmose II had a daughter named Neferure…. Thutmose II fatheredThutmose III with Iset, a secondary wife. Hatshepsut was the chiefwife of Thutmose II, Thutmose III's father. Hatshepsut meaningForemost of Noble Ladies; was the fifth pharaoh of the Eighteenthdynasty of Egypt. Under Hatshepsut's reign, Egypt prospered. Unlikeother rulers in her dynasty, she was more interested in ensuringeconomic prosperity and building and restoring monuments throughoutEgypt and Nubia than in conquering new lands. She built the templeDjeser-djeseru ("holiest of holy places"), which was dedicated toAmon and served as her funerary cult, and erected a pair of redgranite obelisks at the Temple of Amon at Karnak, one of whichstill stands today. Hatshepsut also had one notable tradingexpedition to the land of Punt in the ninth year of her reign. Theships returned with gold, ivory and myrrh trees, and the scene wasimmortalized on the walls of the temple. (MORE)
She was a full leader of Egypt. The queen died in early February of1458 B.C. In recent years, scientists have speculated the cause ofher death to be related to an ointment or salve used to alleviate achronic genetic skin condition. Thutmose III began a campaign toeradicate Hatshepsut's memory: He de…stroyed or defaced hermonuments, erased many of her inscriptions and constructed a wallaround her obelisks. While some believe this was the result of along-held grudge, it was more likely a strictly political effort toemphasize his line of succession and ensure that no one challengedhis son Amunhotep II for the throne.

Octavian ruled Egypt as an imperial province after Cleopatra died. An imperial province loosely means that it is ruled and administered directly by the emperor and the revenue from it also goes directly to the emperor.
Pharaohs added more waterways and dam. They increased the amount of land being farmed and built canal between the Nile river and the Red sea.
