Seti provided him with a kingly household and harem, and the young prince accompanied his father on his campaigns, so that when he came to sole rule he already had experience of kingship and of war. It is noteworthy that Ramses was designated as successor at an unusually young age, as if to ensure that he would in fact succeed to the throne. He ranked as a captain of the army while still only 10 years old; at that age his rank must surely have been honorific, though he may well have been receiving military training. Each of its four quarters had its own presiding deity:
To modern Egyptians, he's a national hero - sort of the equivalent of King Arthurpart real man and part legend - whereas to the rest of the world he is best known for his portrayal as the Pharaoh of the Exodus. Ramses himself was the third monarch of the Nineteenth Dynasty.
However, Egyptian rule in Canaan continued throughout that time and through his entire reign, making a founding of Israel unlikely at that time. One of the few clues in the Bible as to the time of the Exodus is that the Hebrews laboured to build the cities of Pithom and Pi Ramses, which are now known to have been constructed or greatly expanded in his reign.
Also, the first mention of Israel outside of the Bible occurs in a record made sometime after his death, during his son's period on the throne, which indicates possible involvement.
Although he has often been accused of exaggerating his own achievements, Ramses remains one of the most powerful figures of ancient history. He was a courageous warrior, indefatigable ladies' man, builder of enormous temples some of them dedicated to himselfand is notorious for being one of the two kings to sign the first peace treaty between superpowers in all of recorded history.
Notably, Ramses is one of two pharaohs to be commonly known worldwide, the other being Tutankhamun. Inwhen Ramses' mummy was brought to France for restoration, he was issued a passport noting his status and received a king's welcome.
Contemporary records indicate that he had feared being forgotten after his death, and sought to make himself known to the future. He carefully designed his monuments and the carvings of his royal steles in such a way that removing his name would be difficult.
By all accounts, he succeeded. Tropes as portrayed in fiction: Despite the discovery he was red-haired in his youth his mummy still has wispy red hair on its scalpevery portrayal after still portrays him with black hair. Probably because a red haired Egyptian would run into both Reality Is Unrealistic and Black Vikings territory and the unaware might perceive it as a Race Lift with very Unfortunate Implications.
This is of course impossible even with all the incest the Egyptian royal families were known for through the ages.
The Egyptians themselves will often annoyedly comment that there are and more or less always have been Egyptians of all skin and hair colors, the country being a crossroads and melting pot for millennia; indeed, recent scholarship puts the Ramses dynasty as being desended from immigrants Big Bad or Predecessor Villain: In adaptations of the Exodus, which he is depends on if he is the Pharaoh of the Exodus or the Pharaoh of the Oppression.
If he is the former, then either his father Seti I or his grandfather Ramses I will be the latter.
If he is the latter, then his son Merneptah will be the former. He is often represented wearing the Kepresh, or "Blue Crown of War", which was basically a Cool Crown of the Pimped Out Helmet variety; basically a star-studed blue helmet with the royal ureus the cobra which was used during battle.
InRamses was discovered to be a redhead and inhe was discovered to be fair-skinned. Portrayals of him where he is black haired and brown skinned is thus dated. Since there have always been Egyptians of all skin and hair colors some of Ramses' own hieroglyphic murals depict his subjects running the full gamut of skin colorsthis shouldn't come across as surprising though.
He is sometimes portrayed as this in fiction, and at one point, Egyptologists believed he had been responsible for the disappearance of Seti I's true sucessor whose name was erased of all records after the latter's death.
But Ramses fans think this is slander. Even today the Egyptians regard him as a national hero and many claim proudly to be his descendants.
Given the number of his children ninety-six sons and sixty daughters such a claim is more than probable. He is often refered to as the "Great Ancestor". The works that don't villify him tend to portray him as this, in line with how modern Egyptians view him.
Unlike his portrayal in movies, where it is black, when not shaved off, examinations of his mummy showed that he had red hair.
Pale Silver Fragments, referring to himself as Ozymandias. Like many Servants in the Nasuversethere's some Alternate History with his backstory. Moses was his best friend, and while their backstory does follow the events of the Book of ExodusRamesses does not pursue the Israelites upon seeing Moses part the Red Sea.
Instead, he bids his once close friend farewell and lets Moses and the Israelites leave unopposed. Though in that case, they were foster brothers while they are close friends in the Nasuverse. Unlike most versions, this version's is The Good King who fights for the weak, as well as a Boisterous Bruiser and a Blood Knight who savors a good fight against a good opponent.He also got married to his two main wives, Nefertari and Isetnofret.
Nefertari would rule along side Ramses and would become powerful in her own right. As prince, Ramses joined his father in his military campaigns. By the age of 22 he was leading battles by himself. Becoming Pharaoh When Ramses was 25 years old his father died.
