I thought this might be of interest to some of you:

http://www.ancient-egypt.org/glossary/turin_kinglist/index.html

This is an article about the Turin Kinglist.

Quote:
Written during the long reign of Ramesses II, the papyrus, now 1.7m long and 0.41m high, comprises on the recto an unknown number of pages that hold a list of names of persons and institutions, along with what appears to be the tax-assessment of each.

It is, however, the verso of the papyrus that has attracted the most attention, as it contains a list of gods, demi-gods, spirits, mythical and human kings who ruled Egypt from the beginning of time presumably until the composition of this valuable document.

The beginning and ending of the list are now lost, which means that we are missing both the introduction of the list -if ever there was such an introduction- and the enumeration of the kings following the 17th Dynasty.


There are links to the actual King lists. Smile
