34915Y185 The AeGYPTians Considered Pharaoh To Be

Q&@

AN
ACTUAL GOD
RATHER THAN JUST
A DIVINE DEPUTY? The whole
of AeGYPT belonged to thàt god,
and àll people hàd to obey his orders & pay the taxes he levied!
Just as in the Sumerian temples, só also in pharaonic AeGYPT the god
did not manage his business empire by himself: some pharaohs ruled with
an iron fist, while others passed their days at banquets & festivities, but in both cases
the practical work of administering Egypt was left to thousands of literate officials!

Just like any other human, pharaoh had a biological body with biological needs,
desires & emotions. But the biological pharaoh
was of little importance?
The real ruler of the Nile Valley
was an imagined pharaoh
who existed in the stories that
millions of AeGYPTians
told one
another.
