King Narmer

Wouldn’t you like to rule over an entire country while living in luxury? Well here is a biography on one who did this. His name was King Narmer. This biography will also tell you about his life accomplishments, death, and what happened after his death.

There are only a few things he did. One was that he had established the old kingdom in 3100 B.C. Another was that he was the first pharaoh of Egypt. He also created the firs dynasty. The biggest of his accomplishments was conquering Lower Egypt, and uniting Upper and Lower Egypt in 3000 B.C.

The way he died had surprised me. I learned that a hippopotamus in 3120 B.C. killed him. Historians say that he ruled for about 62 years. Then in 1897 we found his tomb. I do not know who found his tomb.

The Narmer palette shows king Narmer wearing the white crown of Upper Egypt and the red crown of Lower Egypt. The Narmer palette is dated 3150 to 3125 B.C. Do to the information in this palette 3157 B.C. has been chosen as the beginning of a predynastic period. This period is known as the Nile River Civilization. This historical data indicates King Narmer’s importance.

From the information that I read about King Narmer, I feel that he was very important to Egyptian history. King Narmer succeeded in uniting Egypt. His 62-year reign created unity within the country. I found researching King Narmer to be very interesting. My conclusion is that King Narmer did a lot for the country and people within it.
