Great Egyptian Pharaohs

Rulers of Egypt were called pharaohs, the only country to call them this. Since Egypt has a history that goes back more than seven thousand years the list of pharaohs is long. Here are a few of the more interesting ones: Hatshepsut (1473 - 1458 BC) One of only a few female pharaohs, Hatshepsut who was the first wife Thutmose II. Hatshepsut Thutmose III (1479 - 1425 BC) Thutmose III might be responsible for the mysterious disappearance of Hatshepsut, but he was still a great ruler. Tutankhamen (1336 - 1327 BC) At the age of nine Tutankhamen (Tutankhamun) became pharaoh. Ramesses II (1279 - 1213 BC) Ramesses II was one of the longest ruling pharaohs of ancient Egypt.
