I was wondering if any of you have a favourite pharaoh? Or maybe you have more than one favourite? Is there a reason you favour them, or is it something you just can't explain?

I asked for FAVOURITE pharaohs, not least favourite ones. Ramesses II is one of my favourites.

I don't really have any favourite ones but I guess that most made some positive contributions.

I definitely have a favorite. So much so I got their cartouche tattooed on my forearm. Her name is Hatshepsut, she was the first badass woman in history that I've ever heard of. She was a very successful ruler and she made Egypt a very prosperous country in her time. Look her up if you haven't heard of her. Read about her expeditions to Punt.
I know that alot of people are just getting to know about her because they have finally identified her body and the Discovery Channel did a piece on her, but she isn't just some seductive sex symbol that people tend to make out of Egyptian women of power. And yes she was an actual Pharaoh, not a Queen.
Seriously check her out.

If you go round Egypt you regularly see Rameses IIs name overcarving the name of the Pharoh who actualy did the work.

Everbody in the World believe that Tutankamon is the greatest paharaoh at the Ancient Egypt History. But I think that Rameses 2 and Seti 1 are the greatest Paharaohs in History. As Rameses 2 is the paraoh , Egypt had the greatest Time. But Seti was a great warrior. With him Egypt won lots of war and also Egypt had a big treasure at the Seti 1 time.

Ramesses II certainly did keep Egypt prosperous. He's definitely at the top of my list of favourites. Very Happy

Well for me my favorite pharaoh was TutenKhamen. he is a great pharaoh and i think his tomb has a movie but i can't remember the tittle because it was an old one. But it shows the greatness of Tutenkhamen.
