The Pharaoh is the fictional account of life and the times of Pharaoh Khufu (2603 B.C. - 2566 B.C.), builder of the largest of the Ancient Egyptian pyramids: Horizon of Khufu (or as it is now known, the Great Pyramid) on the Giza Plateau. This spell-binding and monumental book tells the story of Khufu's life, from childhood to death - his enrolment in the School of Scribes; his duties as prince and then as Pharaoh in the land of Egypt (Kemet); his military conquests into Kush to gather gold for his treasury; his relationships in the royal palace with his wives and children; and finally, his on-going conflicts with the priests who try to undermine his power to increase their own. But above all, it is the story of Khufu's greater vision to construct his magnificent House of Eternity, the pyramid which will ensure his immortality into the After Life - for all of eternity...The Pharaoh is an epic novel researched in great accuracy. It recreates the times of Khufu and the construction of his pyramid, as well as telling the story of the lives of the tens of thousands of everyday workers on the pyramid. These were the quarry cutters, pullers of stone, overseers and supervisors, priests and scribes along with the specialist workers such as the carpenters and stone masons who together, built this mountain of stone as the final resting place for their Pharaoh. The enormous pyramid built by Pharaoh Khufu on the Giza Plateau is the last remaining Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. --Provided by publisher
