Whether alive or dead, pharaohs were the source of all law and order in ancient Egypt.
As ancient Egyptian rulers, pharaohs were both the heads of state and the religious leaders of their people. As the religious leader of the Egyptians, the pharaoh was considered the divine intermediary between the gods and Egyptians. As a statesman, the pharaoh made laws, waged war, collected taxes, and oversaw all the land in Egypt which was owned by the pharaoh. Many scholars believe the first pharaoh was Narmer, also called Menes. Pharaohs were typically male, although there were some noteworthy female leaders, like Hatshepsut and Cleopatra. Hatshepsut, in particular, was a successful ruler, but many inscriptions and monuments about her were destroyed after her death—perhaps to stop future women from becoming pharaohs. After their deaths, many pharaohs were entombed and surrounded by riches they were meant to use in the afterlife.

In the early dynasty, ancient Egyptian kings used to have up to three titles : the Horus , the Sedge and Bee nswt-bjtj , and the Nebty nbtj name. The Golden Horus and nomen and prenomen titles were later added. In Egyptian society, religion was central to everyday life. One of the roles of the pharaoh was as an intermediary between the gods and the people. The pharaoh thus deputised for the gods; his role was both as civil and religious administrator. He owned all of the land in Egypt, enacted laws, collected taxes, and defended Egypt from invaders as the commander-in-chief of the army. During the early days prior to the unification of Upper and Lower Egypt , the Deshret or the "Red Crown", was a representation of the kingdom of Lower Egypt, while the Hedjet , the "White Crown", was worn by the kings of the kingdom of Upper Egypt. After the unification of both kingdoms into one united Egypt, the Pschent , the combination of both the red and white crowns was the official crown of kings. With time new headdresses were introduced during different dynasties like the Khat , Nemes , Atef , Hemhem crown , and Khepresh.
