Menes : First Pharaoh United Kingdoms of Upper and Lower Egypt                       3100 B.C.-3038 B.C.          

According to the african concept of kingship the pharaoh was not a mortal, but a god made in man's image . He was the bridge between the divine forces and his subjects       ( like Jesus). The efficacy of the pharaoh's powers maintained his people while he ruled, and also help to sustain them from the tomb. These attributes were adopted by Egyptian Kings following the reign of Pharaoh Menes:  The Great Pharaoh Menes set the example for pharaoh's to follow.                                                                                     (put pointer on picture)                    (Menu Link)                     Home Page Link
