Description

Pharaoh, (from Egyptian per ʿaa, “great house”), originally, the royal palace in ancient Egypt. The word came to be used metonymically for the Egyptian king under the new kingdom (starting in the 18 th dynasty, 1539–1292 BCE), and by the 22 Nd dynasty, (c. 945–c. 730 BCE) it had been adopted as an epithet of respect. It was never the king’s formal title, though, and its modern use as a generic name for all Egyptian kings is based on the usage of the Hebrew bible.

The Egyptians believed their pharaoh to be the mediator between the gods and the world of men. After death the pharaoh became divine, identified with Osiris, the father of Horus and god of the dead, and passed on his sacred powers and position to the new pharaoh, his son. The pharaoh’s divine status was portrayed in allegorical terms: his uraeus (the snake on his crown) spat flames at his enemies; he was able to trample thousands of the enemy on the battlefield; and he was all-powerful, knowing everything and controlling nature and fertility.

UNIQUE EGYPTIAN PHARAOHS GIFTS

 UNIQUE EGYPTIAN PHARAOHS GIFTS ISIS treated as the mother of Horus even in the earliest copies of the Pyramid Texts.[32] Yet there are signs that Hathor was originally regarded as his mother,[33] and other traditions make an elder form of Horus the son of Nut and a sibling of Isis and Osiris.[34] Isis may only have come to be Horus’s mother as the Osiris myth took shape during the Old Kingdom,[33] but through her relationship with him she came to be seen as the epitome of maternal devotion.[35]

In the developed form of the myth, Isis Egyptian goddess gives birth to Horus, after a long pregnancy and a difficult labor, in the papyrus thickets of the Nile Delta. As her child grows she must protect him from Set and many other hazards—snakes, scorpions, and simple illness.[36] In some texts, Isis travels among humans and must seek their help. According to one such story, seven minor scorpion deities travel with and guard her. They take revenge on a wealthy woman who has refused to help Isis by stinging the woman’s son, making it necessary for the goddess to heal the blameless child.[37] Isis’s reputation as a compassionate deity, willing to relieve human suffering, contributed greatly to her appeal.[38]

Goddess of kingship and protection of the kingdom

Horus was equated with each living pharaoh and Osiris with the pharaoh’s deceased predecessors. Isis was therefore the mythological mother and wife of kings. In the Pyramid Texts her primary importance to the king was as one of the deities who protected and assisted him in the afterlife. Her prominence in royal ideology grew in the New Kingdom.[51] Temple reliefs from that time on show the king nursing at Isis’s breast; her milk not only healed her child, but symbolized his divine right to rule.[52] Royal ideology increasingly emphasized the importance of queens as earthly counterparts of the goddesses who served as wives to the king and mothers to his heirs. Initially the most important of these goddesses was Hathor, whose attributes in art were incorporated into queens’ crowns. But because of her own mythological links with queenship, Isis too was given the same titles and regalia as human queens.[53]

UNIQUE EGYPTIAN GODDESS ISIS GOD of magic and wisdom

 UNIQUE EGYPTIAN MOTHERHOOD ISIS  was also known for her magical power, which enabled her to revive Osiris and to protect and heal Horus, and for her cunning.[56] By virtue of her magical knowledge, she was said to be “more clever than a million gods”.[57][58] In several episodes in the New Kingdom story “The Contendings of Horus and Set“, Isis uses these abilities to outmaneuver Set during his conflict with her son. On one occasion, she transforms into a young woman who tells Set she is involved in an inheritance dispute similar to Set’s usurpation of Osiris’s crown. When Set calls this situation unjust, Isis taunts him, saying he has judged himself to be in the wrong.[58] In later texts, she uses her powers of transformation to fight and destroy Set and his follow
