I thought it'd be nice to have an entire post dedicated to:
Usermaatre Setepenre Ramessu Meriamen: Rameses II, Beloved of Amen.
He seems to be very interesting. Like how he had so many temples built for himself, (I'm sure a lot of other pharaohs did as well, but it seems a lot of Rameses lasted through the years. The man who was born a commoner, ended up becoming one of Egypt's greatest kings. The thing is rameses never seems to acknowlege his common roots, I guess back then it wasn't looked upon highly. I just wish we knew more of his private life, my goodness why didn't these pharaohs write in journals??

Don't forget that the pharaohs were thought of as the living gods.
