Summary:
The Egyptian pharaohs tried to create immortality for their god-king legacy. They attempted it with mummification and huge tombs, but grave robbers and time destroyed most of these. Still, many images and mummies remain, but one pharaoh's legacy, Akhenaton's, was deliberately obliterated by polytheistic priests because his monotheism threatened their power. Only in the 20th century did knowledge of Akhenaton, worshipper of the sun god, and perhaps the first personality in history, come to light. Aligns with McDougal Littell's World History: Ancient Egypt and Kush ©2009; and World History: Patterns of Interaction ©2009: Early River Civilizations.
