This whole thing started out as a couple disjoined pages of collected images and notes. Over the years it became more refined, but like many projects, it grew beyond its initial scope. So I created this site to try to organise the sources of the names of the pharaohs, with references and hieroglyphs freely available online.
Almost all hieroglyphs presented has been verified by visual inspection of the sources mentioned. This is a hobby, I am not an Egyptologist. I add to this website when time permits. The site is primarily designed for and intended to be read on a large screen.
For historical or general information about pharaohs, Wikipedia
is a much better place to start. The very order of succession is disputed by Egyptologists on a number of pharaohs. This website concentrates on the actual names, not discussions about which pharaoh should be placed where. I have tried to follow the general consensus, but that is not always easy, as progression takes years and is often hidden in obscure journals only available to academia.
There are bound to be errors, typos, omissions and other (hopefully minor)
problems. Always check with the original sources
to make sure that you are getting accurate information. It is up to you
which websites you trust, but you should always check the sources anyway before repeating potentially
false information. Yes, that includes this website!
I would like to thank Bieke Mahieu for invaluable help and inspiration with the Turin king list.
