Home > Blossary: Famous Pharaoh
The term pharaoh ultimately was derived from a compound word represented as pr-ꜥ3, written with the two biliteral hieroglyphs pr "house" and ꜥꜣ "column". It was used only in larger phrases such as smr pr-aa 'Courtier of the High House', with specific reference to the buildings of the court or palace. From the twelfth dynasty onward the word appears in a wish formula 'Great House, may it live, prosper, and be in health', but again only with reference to the royal palace and not the person.

Also known as Ramesses the Great. Ramesses II is the most famous of the Pharaohs, and there is no doubt that he intended this to be so. In astronomical terms, he is the Jupiter of the Pharaonic system, and for once the superlative is appropriate, since the giant planet shines brilliantly at a distance, but on close inspection turns out to be a ball of gas. Ramesses II, or at least the version of him which he chose to feature in his inscriptions, is the hieroglyphic equivalent of hot air. Nowadays this ruler's name is known to every knickknack-seller in the Nile Valley, a posterity which would not have embarrassed him in the least. Ramesses has gained a multimedia afterlife: his mummy is flown from Cairo to Paris to be exhibited and re-autopsied, and a series of airport-lounge best-sellers by a French writer, Christian Jacq, gives a soap-opera version of his life. Ramesses II...is the hieroglyphic equivalent of hot air. Yul Brynner captured the essence of his personality in the 1956 film The Ten Commandments, and in popular imagination Ramesses II has become the Pharaoh of the Exodus. The history behind this is much debated, but it is safe to say that the character of Ramesses fits the picture of the overweening ruler who refuses divine demands. The king's battle against the Hittites at Qadesh in Syria was a near defeat, caused by an elementary failure of military intelligence, and saved only by the last-minute arrival of reinforcements from the Lebanese coast. In Ramesses' account, which occupies whole walls on many of his monuments, this goalless draw turns into the mother of all victories, won single-handedly by himself.

Taip pat žinomas kaip Ramesseum didžiojo. Ramesseum II yra labiausiai žinomas faraonų, ir nėra abejonių, kad jis ketino kad tai padaryti. Astronomijos požiūriu jis yra faraonų sistemos Jupiteris, ir šį kartą į įstaigos yra tinkamas, nes planetą šviečia puikiai atstumu, bet glaudžiai patikrinimo metu paaiškėja, kad būti dujų kamuolys. Ramesseum II, ar bent jį, kurį jis pasirinko yra jo užrašai, versija hieroglifų ekvivalentas karšto oro. Šiandien šis valdovas ' s pavadinimas yra žinoma, kad kiekvienas knickknack-pardavėjui Nilo slėnyje, palikuonių, kurie būtų ne būti įsiskolinęs jį mažiausiai. Ramesseum įgijo multimedijos pomirtinį gyvenimą: jo Mumija yra skrendama iš Kairas į Paryžių būtų eksponuojami ir vėl autopsied, ir nemažai oro uoste pardavėjų iš Prancūzijos rašytojas, krikščionių Antanas, suteikia muilo operos versiją savo gyvenimą. Ramesseum II... hieroglifų testai prilygsta sterilizavimo. Yul Brynner Paimkite esmė jo asmenybė, 1956 m. kino Dešimt Dievo įsakymų, ir populiarus vaizduotę Ramesseum II tapo masinio išvykimo Faraonas. Už tai istorija yra daug diskutuojama, bet tai galima pasakyti, kad pobūdį, Ramesseum tinka visai nesmagiai valdovas, kurie atsisako Dievo poreikius nuotraukų. Karalius ' s kova ne Qadesh Sirijoje Hetitai buvo šalia pralaimėjimas, sukelia elementarus gedimo karinės žvalgybos, ir išsaugotas tik paskutinę minutę atvykimo sutvirtinimus Libano krantų. Į Ramesseum ' sąskaita, kuri užima visą sienos daug jo paminklų, šį goalless atkreipti virsta motina visų Pergalių, laimėjo vieną vienovę pats.
