Pharaoh Menes the king of Memphis
If legend says that king Narmer united upper and lower Egypt some historians think Narmer actually represents several kings....
King Menes (a.k.a.) Narmer of Egypt united the thus stating the first dynasty of pharaohs in Egypt in about 3150 B.C.E. He was the first one to wear the double crown which… was made by the red crown the symbol of lower Egypt and the white crown the symbol of upper Egypt . The double crown is also a symbol for the upper and lower Egypt .
Around 3100 BCE
Narmer, AKA Menes, united Upper and Lower Egypt in 3100 BC.
King Menes united upper and lower Egypt
The first pharaoh to have united the "two lands" of Upper and Lower Egypt was said to have been King Narmer in 3000 b.c. Thereafter the pharaoh of Egypt was represented wearin…g a double crown (cat. no. 50a) that combined the white crown of Upper Egypt (cat. no. 26) and the red crown of Lower Egypt (cat. no. 51). Other symbols of the unification of the two lands are combined on the royal regalia: from Lower Egypt, the cobra or uraeus and from Upper Egypt, the vulture. I hope that answered your question! the pharaoh that united Egypt is not called narmer in fact there was no such person that ruled us and they united in 1554 bc and the crown was red and white and i think the phaoroah that united Egypt was called Atem (توم . i hope this gves a btter understanding of the question you asked
King Menes. By combining the Two crowns.
It is common belief that Pharaoh Menes of the early dynastic period of Egypt is the one to have united upper and lower Egypt into one single Kingdom. But some believe that he …is confused with Pharaoh Narmer, who they believe in actuality was the one to credit for the unification. Also the first-dynasty Pharaoh, Hor-aha, is said to have done the deed.
It was important for the pharoah to unite the Upper Egypt and lower because if he didnt there will be more attacks that will ruin the town.
Who: King Narmer / Menes When: 3100 B.C.E.
