What does pharaoh mean in ancient Egyptian?
Pharaoh is a term to describe ancient Egyptian kings. The word derives from ancient Greek word Pharaō, which itself is derived from ancient Egyptian word pr ˤ3 which comes from two words: pr, meaning "house", and: ˤ3, meaning "great, big", so the word means a great house, a palace. And it came to mean metonymically the king living in the palace from c. 1450 BCE onwards.
