Explore the History and Mythology of the Egyptian Kingdom
There are many mysteries of the ancient Egyptian empire and dynasties. Archaeologists and Egyptologists have been studying the artifacts and ruins for centuries, and there is still much left to learn. The body of Cleopatra VII, who was the last ruler of Egypt and is one of the most famed people in history, has never been discovered. Yet, there have been many amazing discoveries, such as the tomb of King Tutankhamun or King Tut, which was discovered fully intact and full of amazing artifacts, engravings, and history.
The Egyptians have a rich history, and the ancient Egyptians were able to develop this in near isolation, meaning they had a truly unique belief system, rulership, and craftsmanship. While influences from Greece and Rome may have affected Egypt later on due to their long history of isolation of developing their social, political, and religious systems, they still stayed much the same and kept the essence of what was most important to them.
While doing this, the ancient Egyptians also used the opportunities of foreigners, such as the Greek settlers, to trade and learn more effective battle practices. Learning to adapt while keeping their traditions close enabled the Egyptians to strengthen their kingdom and keep a hold on their country for thousands of years, until it fell from the Roman invasion.
