How did the ancient Egyptian view the Pharaohs?
The population of Egypt in the ancient times viewed the Pharaohs as divinities (god-like beings). In ancient Egyptian mythology, the God Osiris and Isis had a son named Horus; it was believed that the Pharaoh was the reincarnation of Horus himself. And son, they followed every single one of his orders as long as he governed under Maat, the Goddess of Equality and Balance. It was said that not following her ways and the ways of the older pharaohs, there would be chaos and civil unrest.
well for one they were never "slaves" the ancient Egyptian people built pyramids for the "gods" they worshipped and thought maybe it would get them a good spot in the afterlife! but anyways the pharaohs were there basically as the man in the middle between gods and humans. The pharaohs didn't interact with the ancient Egyptians but was more of a ruler to them and told them what the gods wanted from them.
