In the Middle Kingdom, gods were believed to care for all of its people and not just the Divine Monarch (Wallech, 2013, p. 60). The rulers cared for the kingdom 's people which showed a sharp change in attitudes toward people. No longer was the ruler placed on a pedestal and treated like untouchable royalty. Treating citizens as a part of society assisted Egypt in growing and becoming successful in trade, writing and protecting itself. In Babylonia, the people were treated as sacred to the kingdom while outsiders were viewed as alien (Wallech, 2013, p.43).

The Pharaoh was helped by a hierarchy of advisors, priests, officials, and administrators, who were responsible for the concern of the state and the well-being of the people.
His uncles, the 400 Mimixcoas, who hated Mixcoatl, killed and buried him. Quetzalcoatl looked for his father and found his bones and buried them in the Hill of Mixcoatl (Mixcoatepetl). Informed of this, the murderers, Apanecatl, Zolton, and Cuilton, told Quetzalcoatl that they would be angry if he inaugurated (drilled with the fire sticks) his temple (on the hill) by sacrificing a rabbit or a serpent, because the required sacrifices were an eagle, a jaguar, and a kind of wolf. Quetzalcoatl told the three animals that they would not die, but that, on the contrary, they would eat the three uncles to inaugurate the temple. He went to the temple through an underground gallery and lit the inaugural fire.
Ruled by Ptolemy I Soter in 323 BC, he turned Egypt as part of the Hellenistic kingdoms. The rapid growth and influence of the Ptolemaic Kingdom mainly came from eagerness of Ptolemy I to further strengthen his own position as ruler. Housing the capital of Alexandria within the kingdom, Egypt became the most important learning center as libraries were constructed and Greek influence was nurtured into the part of the Egyptian culture. Egyptians with status and class, like Ptolemy I who had been recorded to have donated talents for the arts, were seen by the native Greeks as very skillful and educated.

With Mukhtar’s work, power was not represented through wealth or grand tombs but by sculpting portraits and statues of strong people that helped lead Egypt to nationalism and embrace their culture and history. In his own way, Mukhtar sculpted the Pharaohs of his time, the people that would have the most power to him and lead in the most relatable and contemporary way to the Pharaohs of ancient Egypt.

Also, similar to ancient Egypt, the sculptures made by Mukhtar immortalized the individual and has made it so that their spirit will continue to live on like the sculptures of Pharaohs.

This proved his worthiness to being ruler by justifying his abilities to provide for and protect his empire. Since the Romans did not like that title of king, “he received the title Augustus by decree of the senate.” During his reign, Caesar accomplish countless things, which is why he is still talked highly about to this day. He repaired the conduits of aqueducts, dozens of temples, and completed the Julian forum and the basilica.
