Kings ruled ancient Egypt throughout most of its history. Some time
between 1554 and 1304 B.C. the people began to call the king pharaoh.
The Egyptians believed each of their kings were the god Horus in human
form. Many Egyptian kings had several other wives, called lesser
wives, at the same time. Some chief wives gave birth to daughters
but no sons, and several of those daughters claimed the right to the throne.
