    This was an interesting read, I didn't realise how in depth this book would be and I found myself engrossed with all the little facts presented for each Pharaoh and each of the Dynasties. Like with all history some of the facts can be a little gruesome but personally I'm fascinated by all. If I was to criticise the book in anyway than I would say that Cleopatra and the Romans was watered down to a single page which was a little disappointing as that was the reason why I got the book in the first [...]

    Overall, the Chronicle of the Pharaohs is a decent reference book. It provides entries on the pharaohs in chronological order, from the earliest potential rulers from before the unification of the Two Lands, to the end of the Ptolemaic Dynasty and the inauguration of Roman Egypt. The cartouches for each ruler are provided, where they exist, and photographs of portraits and artefacts, illustrations of structures, and extra information boxes add to the experience. However, from the end of the New [...]

    I always enjoy the 'CHRONICLE OF' series of books, which present easy chronological histories of various rulers and empires throughout history. This one focuses on the ancient Egyptians, starting in 3150 BC and ending with the death of the famous Cleopatra in 31 BC. Thousands of years in 224 pages is not an easy assignment.The first Pharaoh was considered to be the man they called, 'Scorpion'. If you're going to be the first united ruler of Egypt, that's a great name to have. Although there were [...]

    Um dos melhores manuais sobre o assunto. Segue as várias dinastias e fala de quase tudo um pouco. Seja para quem procura algo mais leve sobre o assunto, seja para quem procure uma entrada e depois toma caminho para aprofundar determinadas partes.

    Carefully researched, and though written in 1994, contains much more than they knew when I first looked into Egyptian Archeology. Contains photographs of ALL the ancient rulers of Egypt in 224 pages. These were taken from the cartouches on the bases of the plinths, the belts and even potsherds etc. of each of them, from 3150 B.C. up to Cleopatra VII in B.C 30, from the Cairo, British and Museums in the United States. Each king or queen wore the White Crown or the Red Crown (sometimes both) of Up [...]

    Very well organized with timelines and such, adequately accurate summaries of each reign, convenient boxes for disputed theories and otherwise notable events, plus tables of family, tomb location, official throne-names, cartouches, etc. The writing style is efficient and easy to get through. The supporting art is apt. What's not to love? This is a great resource for an introduction to a particular pharaoh's reign, though probably oversimplified to any actual Egyptologist. It is probably not the [...]

    Boeiend en vooral goed geïllustreerd overzicht van de Egyptische geschiedenis, aan de hand van de farao's. De chronologische lijn is die van de opeenvolgende dynastieën. Vlotte up-to-date-informatie. Prachtige illustraties en uitweidingen.Maar: te nauw vasthangend aan de figuren, ook als ze niet zo belangrijk zijn (bijv. storende uitleg over wat er met de mummie is gebeurd). Gecompenseerd door ruimere aandacht aan farao's van het Nieuwe Rijk.Ook geen systematisch inzicht in de Egyptische besch [...]

    This book is a classic, and one of the first books I obtained when I first started getting interested in Egyptology.Although there have been a few recent discoveries that would necessitate a new edition of this book, this is still one of the best breakdowns of the known Pharoahs of Ancient Egypt.

    Full of interesting information, but sometimes it lets you longing for more. It is a basic chronicle of the pharaohs of the Ancient Egypt, when they ruled, where they were buried, etc.What I liked about it was that it is filled with lots of photos of pharaoh tombs, sculptures, mortuary masks and, where applicable, the museum where they are displayed. Makes you get into trip-planning mode.

    A must have for anyone with a lasting interest in Ancient Egyptology. I find all of these Chronicle books valuable, but my interest in ancient Egypt has made this a reference I keep returning too.It's an essential quick reference, but also a pretty good read, cover to cover. I can't think of a better way to get a quick survey of the long history of Egypt than to read the book through.
