About This Quiz

The Egyptian empire was one of the most impressive in all of human history. It was a civilization that left behind pyramids, obelisks, temples, and statues that boggle the mind and are astounding even by modern construction standards. At the forefront of this society were the pharaohs, who were equal parts leader and living god/goddess.

The pharaoh's name said a lot about the kind of leader they were and the divine energy they saw themselves manifesting into reality. At the height of the empire, the leader of Egypt could arguably be said to be the most powerful person on the planet. The people feared and admired their leader, devoting all of their daily energies to their ruler's pleasure.

Are you a born leader who excels at being in a position of power? Is it clear that you are meant to go down in history as one of the greatest to ever sit on the throne? The time has come for you to ascend to the top of ancient Egyptian culture. The first task will be to uncover your real name.

The high priests and priestesses from every temple in the land have gathered together and created a list of questions that will determine your true name. Step through the curtain and into the innermost chamber. The time has come to become the divine presence you were always meant to be.
