Chronicle of the Pharaohs: The Reign-By-Reign Record of the Rulers and Dynasties of Ancient Egypt

 Author: Peter A. Clayton  Category: Royal  Publisher: Thames & Hudson  ISBN: ISBN:9780500286289

Who was the first king of ancient Egypt and who was the last? Which Egyptian queens ruled in their own right? What do we know about the 170 or more pharaohs whose names have come down to us? Chronicle of the Pharaohs is the first book to depict chronologically and in narrative form all the rulers and dynasties of Egypt. From Narmer, who first united lands along the Nile, to Cleopatra 3,000 years later, the history of ancient Egypt is brought vividly to life through the exploits and personalities of her rulers. Key features of the book include biographical portraits of all the known pharaohs’ timelines throughout, with at-a-glance visual guides to the length of each reign and the overlapping of dynasties; datafiles for every pharaoh, listing key information such as royal titles and family relationships; cartouches (royal names in hieroglyphs) for each king and queen; genealogical tables, lists of main historical events, and special features of subjects that range from the six wives of Rameses the Great to the Exodus; Portraits of all the major rulers and specially commissioned cutaway diagrams of royal tombs and monuments. Here is an essential reference to ancient Egypt that provides an extraordinary visual introduction to the diversity and richness of this fascinating civilization. Museum-goers, tourists, students, and everyone interested in the world of ancient Egypt will quickly make the Chronicle their inseparable companion.
