Greater than the other state, Egypt epitomises the harsh disappointments of the Arab Spring. In under 4 years, its humans have come complete circle. A sclerotic, cynical, probably immovable army regime, disguised by means of a fig-leaf of ostensible illustration, was once swept away on a joyous tsunami of renowned idealism; a corrupt dictator used to be ousted, attempted and jailed; unfastened elections have been held, a brand new president peacefully put in, and a brand new age of freedom and democracy appeared certainly attainable.

15 Gardiner’s comments on the Aigyptiaca can be paraphrased as follows:16 In Manetho’s work the entire history of Egypt, after the reigns of the gods and demi-gods, was divided into 31 dynasties of royal families, beginning with Menes and ending with Alexander the Great’s conquest in 332 BC. In spite of all the defects this division into dynasties exhibits, it has taken so firm a root in the literature of Egyptology that there is but little chance of its ever being abandoned. In the forms in which the book has reached us there are inaccuracies of the most glaring kind, these finding their climax in Dyn.

A second seal of the last king of Dyn. 1 lists all his predecessors, but leaves out Merytneith. It would be optimistic to assume a straight fatherto-son succession throughout the whole dynasty. No such documentation survives for Dyns. 2–3 and here the order and genealogy of the kings remains uncertain. 8 M. L. Bierbrier, Hieroglyphic Texts from Egyptian stelae etc. 10 (London, 1982), pl. 72; M. L. Bierbrier & H. de Meulenaere, “Hymne à Taouêret sur une stèle de Deir elMédineh,” in R. Holthoer & T.

The guardian Penbuy of Dyn. 19 is known to have had two wives— Amentetwosret and Iretnefer. A stela shows Penbuy, Iretnefer and his adult son Amenmose, but another shows him with Amentetwosret and an infant Amenmose. 8 The dissolution of marriages by death or divorce would not have been uncommon, yet plurality of marriages is rarely documented.
