Ancient Egyptians viewed their pharaohs as living gods. They were the personification of AMUN-RA the king of gods, and when they died they became true gods. Therefore these pharaohs weren't only regarded as the kings of Egypt but as divinity.

Egyptians believed that their pharaoh bore full responsibility for the kingdom's well-being, the sun to rise, the rivers to overflow, and the crops to grow. It was the pharaoh's duty to promote truth and justice. He was worshiped and appreciated.
