Comparing the king lists

The three major New Kingdom king lists inscribed on stone are:

The Abydos and Saqqara lists contain two rows of cartouches organised with the names of the pharaohs inscribed in sequential order on a single flat wall.

The Karnak list contain 4 rows inscribed on three connected walls and the cartouches are not in sequential order. It is further divided into a left and right part where the pharaohs face the same direction.

This page is a visual comparison of the cartouches on the three list. For more information about the lists, check their respective page.
