Do modern dictators use the same methods to rise to and maintain power as the pharaohs did in ancient Egypt? Have you ever wondered what methods pharaohs use to gain power? Dictators gained power in very different ways when compared to the methods that pharaohs used. Although Kim Jong Un is usually thought of as the crazy dictator of North Korea, he actually has more than one side to him, he may act the way he does because he inherited power from his father. Pharaohs usually inherited the right to rule from their parents or married into the royal family because they were considered gods.
First, I would like to start off talking about is going to be the pyramids (tombs for the Pharaoh. )A pyramid is a structure, usually of stone, built in the shape of a pyramid.

Leadership and ideology in Egypt were strongly linked, with rulers being presented as divine and the heirs of the previous rulers, the gods (RoS 2014:234). The hieroglyphic term for ruler was ‘nswt’ and the term for the king of the gods was ‘nswt ntrw’ – the ‘nswt’ ruled by right not only Egypt but the entire world and was responsible for maintaining both the social order and the cosmic balance (Trigger 2003:72). Rulers were considered as deities and thus immortal, and although they might succumb to physical death, this was not total death – as the ka of the leader was able to remain above ground, while the funerary rites enabled the soul to enter the underworld (RoS 2014:203-4). Egyptian elite developed a sophisticated ideology of kingship portraying the pharaoh as the point of connection between human society, the gods and the wider cosmos (Baines 1995:95). Beyond his ideological role, the king was both a soldier (head of the army) and a priest (chief priest of all the temples) – the military and the priesthood can thus not be dissociated from the kingship (Exell & Naunton 2007:93) His status was expressed and reinforced through various strategies: royal dress, iconography, myths, rituals, propagandistic texts and monumental architecture (Goebs 2007:275).

The Maya civilization includes advances in learning and the arts. One of the cultural achievements are the well known towering temples and palaces made of stone.

Many of its elements originated in religious ideas, but the struggle between Horus and Set may have been partly inspired by a regional conflict in Egypt 's history Osiris rules Egypt, having inherited the kingship from his ancestors in a lineage stretching back to the creator of the world, His queen is Isis who, along with Osiris and his murderer Set, is one of the children of the earth god geb and the sky goddess Little information about the reign of Osiris appears in Egyptian sources; the focus is on his death and the events that follow Osiris is connected with life-giving power, righteous kingship, and wise rule the ideal natural order whose maintenance was a fundamental goal in ancient Egyptian culture.Set is closely associated with violence and
Civilizations like the ancient Egypt, where they handle it with mummification. Though appearing to be quite the contrast, mummification has quite a lot in common with how we handle our dead bodies. Around year 2600 B.C., ancient Egyptians are commencing their own ritual to honor the dead, mummification. Mummification was important to the ancient egyptians because they believed the body was a house for the soul, and without it the soul could be forever lost (Egyptians Mummies).
