For over 3000 years, the ancient Egyptian monarch was the central figure, the supreme head of the administrative, religious, political, and military state. Not merely a worldly leader, the king was the chief link between the human and the divine, himself the physical offspring of a divine god. Monarchs of the Nile is a vivid and engaging account of the lives and times of some of the more significant occupants of the Egyptian throne, from the unification of the country around 3000 BCE to the extinction of native rule just under three millennia later. Drawing on two further decades of  research since Monarchs of the Nile was first published in 1995, Aidan Dodson provides study of the famous, popular and lesser-known monarchs, bringing together in highly readable form a compelling view of Egyptian kings and all their range of achievements.
Aidan Dodson is a senior research fellow in the Department of Archaeology and Anthropology at the University of Bristol, England, and a past holder of the Simpson Chair of Egyptology at the American University in Cairo (AUC).
