Ramesses the Great's Cartouches
Designed by HoremWeb
His Majesty [the Strong Bull, Beloved of Maat, The Two Ladies Protecting Kemet, Conqueror of the Foreign Hordes, The Golden Horus, Mighty and Enduring, Whose Victories are Great, King of Upper and Lower Egypt, Usermaatra Setepenra, [Son of Ra,] Meriamon Ramesses' (l. p. h.) _nomen_ and _prenomen_ in cartouches, standing on the hieroglyph of 'nub' (gold) and crowned with the Sun-disc and feathers of Amun-Ra, as they are featured in several monuments of the King, like in the pillars of the Great Hypostyle Hall in Karnak Temple. As an admirer of the great Pharaoh I always wondered that you cannot get a decent tee with his cartouches. Anywhere you go you'll get Tutankhamun's cartouches in pendants, T-shirts, maybe in snowballs, too, but no way to find the names of "King of Kings, Ozymandias" (Shelley's poem based on a statue of Ramesses the Great). The rule of Ramesses II brought peace and wealth to the Two Lands of ancient Egypt, by victories both in north at Levante and Canaan and south at Nubia, and even in west over the Lybian tribes. He signed the peace treaty with the Hittites and as a strange exception, they even kept it. He died in his 90 or 91, after 64 or 67 years of reign, survived most of his subjects, including his numerous children. His successor Merneptah was his 13th son (of about 60+ children). He was honoured as "The Great Ancestor" for centuries and received full military honour when he visited Paris for a medical cure after 3200 years of his death. (Just check Wikipedia, it is true.)
