    DescriptionThis work aims to present a concise account of the lives and times of some of the more significant occupants of the Egyptian throne, from the unification of the country in around 3000BC, down to the extinction of native rule just under three millennia later. Some, such as Tuthmosis III, had a major impact upon their time, and were remembered by their own people until the very civilization collapsed. Others, such as Tuthankhamun, were soon forgotten by the Egyptians themselves, only to burst into popular culture thousands of years after their deaths, as a result of the labours of modern archaeologists. Still more remain unknown outside the small circle of professional archaeologists, but led lives that call out for wider dissemination.
