The Kingship is a Perfect Office

Kingship in ancient Egypt can be described by ideal behaviors 

prescribed to rulers in more than one literary work. This talk 

will consider how New Kingdom rulers through the reign of Ramses III 

can be seen in the light of those literary models and will indicate 

what behaviors distinguish these kings from those before and after them. 

We hope to see hints of what rulers claimed to be doing in their governance 

of the land but also what effects their rules may have had on the society at all levels.
