Overview

Ramses II: Egyptian Pharaoh, Warrior, and Builder by Stephanie Fitzgerald

Ramses II was one of the greatest pharaohs to rule ancient Egypt. Taking the throne in his early 20s and leading Egypt for 67 years, he was one of the longest-ruling pharaohs. Known for his strategic military skills, Ramses displayed his military might at the Battle of Kadesh, which set up an alliance with Egypt's sworn enemy. He was also an extraordinary builder. Throughout his reign as pharaoh, he ordered the construction of more temples and monuments than any other ruler. His accomplishments and long-lasting reign earned him the title of Ramses the Great.
