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.
