Pharaoh

From PathfinderWiki
(Redirected from God-Kings)
Osirion

Pharaoh, or god-king, is the title that has been given to the leader of Osirion for millennia. The people of Osirion have always believed, and continue to believe, that the pharaohs rule by divine right.[1] This article attempts to list the various pharaohs and pharaonic dynasties that have ruled Osirion through the ages. Unfortunately, much of the history is lost and there are many gaps in the history. Dates given are those of the period of the pharaoh's rule.[2][3][4]

First Age of Osirion (-3470 AR to -1498 AR)

Pharaoh Hakotep I

Second Age of Osirion, or the Age of the Black Sphinx (-1498 AR to 1532 AR)

  • Within the Menedes Dynasty, there were Pharaohs with names other than Menedes, including:

Keleshite Interregnum (1532 AR to 4609 AR)

In 1532 AR, Pharaoh Menedes XXVI is deposed by forces of the Padishah Empire of Kelesh and is the last pharaoh of Osirion until Khemet I in 4609 AR.[11]

Third Age of Osirion (4609 AR to Present Day)

Pharaoh Khemet III, the Ruby Prince

The first pharaoh to rule Osirion since Menedes XXVI is Khemet I.

Undated Osirian Pharaohs

There are some pharaohs of Osirion whose details have been lost to time; perhaps a tomb has been found that references them but no information about when they ruled is currently known.

Other God Kings & Pharaohs

Although the terms 'pharaoh' and 'god king' are most associated with the rulers of Osirion, they are used in other contexts:
