Secret of the Pharaoh. OK, it is time to dive little bit into the history of Egypt, learning something more about Ramsses II. He was also known as Ramesses the Great and he was actually the third pharaoh of the Nineteenth Dynasty of Egypt. This man is usually regarded as the greatest, most famous, and most influental pharaoh of the Egyptian Empire whose successors and later Egyptians called the ‘Great Ancestor’. The pharaoh Ramesses II was a leader of few military missions into the Levant, reasserting Egyptian power over Canaan and also led expeditions to the south, into Nubia, commemorated in inscriptions at Beit el-Wali and Gerf Hussein.
Ramsses was appointed Prince Regent by his father Seti I when he was fourteen years old and he is believed to have taken the throne in his late teens and is identified to have ruled Egypt from 1279 BC to 1213 BC. The early part of his time in power was directed on building cities, temples and monuments and he set up the city of Pi-Ramesses in the Nile Delta as his new capital and main base for his campaigns in Syria.
But at the moment this great pharaoh is severely ill but no one needs to know that because his opponents would like to take an advantage from his sickness. Ramsses’s wife is the only person that is familiar what is going on, so she has to keep the secret and take all the responsibilities around the empire, at the same time finding a cure for her husband’s condition.
