List of the kings of Egypt from the Temple of Ramesses
 (голосов: 0)
The chronology of the rulers of Egypt is based on many sources: a list compiled by the historian Manetho in the third century вс, dated inscriptions and documents on papyrus, references to identifiable astronomical events, and lists of kings inscribed on papyrus and stone.

This limestone list of Egyptian rulers was excavated from a memorial temple of Ramesses II (reigned 1279-1213 вс). The list tells us as much about Egyptian ideas of history as it does about the chronology of their kings. Names of Ramesses IIs ancestors are in cartouches starting at the top right. The cartouches of his own name are repeated many times at the bottom. Originally, there were 76 royal names, though some monarchs whose reigns were controversial have been left out, such as the Hyksos kings from the Levant (ruled 1650-1550 вс), Queen Hatshepsut (reigned 1491-1479 вс) and the pharaoh Akhenaten (about 1390-1352 вс).
