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.
