Indo-European Hittites, and on the right, Semitics from Syria.

|RAMSES II - LAST SIGNIFICANT WHITE RED HAIRED PHARAOH
Egypt's last display of national vigor came with the red haired Pharaoh Ramses II
Several dates have been given as to his reign. (1292 - 1225 BC). Ramses II
managed to re-establish the already decaying Egyptian Empire by recapturing much
land in Nubia.
He also fought a series of battles against invading Indo-Europeans, the Hittites. This
was culminated with the battle of Kadesh in northern Syria. Ramses signed a treaty
with the Hittites in 1258 BC, which ended the war. In terms of the treaty, Ramses took
as his wife an Indo-European Hittite princess. His other achievements included the
building of the rock-hewn temple of Abu Simbel, the great hall in the Temple of Amon
at Karnak, and the mortuary temple at Thebes.
After this king, Egypt entered into a steady period of decay, caused directly by the
elimination of the original Egyptians, and their replacement with a mixed population
made up of Black, Semitic and the remnant White population. This racially divergent
nation was never again to reach the heights achieved by the First, Second or the first
part of the Third Kingdoms. In these later years there were competing claimants to
the pharaohs throne, many of whom, racially speaking, bore no resemblance to the
original pharaohs at all.
Professor P. F. Ceccaldi, with a research team, studied some hairs from the
mummy's scalp. Ramesses II was thought to be 87 years-old when he died, and his
hair had turned white. Ceccaldi determined that the reddish-yellow color of the hair
was due to a dye with a dilute henna solution. Many Egyptians dyed their hair, and this
personal habit was preserved by the embalmers. However, traces of the hair's
original color remained in the roots. Microscopic examinations showed that the hair
roots contained natural red pigments, and that therefore, during his younger days,
Ramesses II had been a red head. Analysis concluded that these red pigments did
not result from the hair somehow fading, or otherwise being altered after death, but
did represent Ramesses' natural hair color. Ceccaldi also studied the cross-section
of the hairs, and determined from their oval shape, that Ramesses had been
"cymotrich" (wavy-haired). Finally, he stated that such a combination of features
showed that Ramesses had been a "leucoderm" (white-skinned person).
The mummy of the red haired Egyptian King, Ramses II, is on public display at the
Egyptian Museum, Cairo
Forensics tests were done on Ramses, proving that his red hair was 'natural'. Ref:
Ramses the Great by National Geographics.

1290 BC - Much evidence of mass destruction of cities that would have occurred with
the Israelite invasion of Canaan.
1290 BC - the Israelites, under the leadership of Moses, left Egypt for "the promised
land" of Canaan in the Exodus
"1290 BC" is significant since 1,290 is the number specifically mentioned in Dan.

History describes them as a darker race, but in truth they were Caucasian .
In the study of Egyptian Kingdoms things can get quite confusing. For example the reigns of the early New Kingdom pharaohs Tao II, Kamose, Ahmose, Amenhotep I, Thutmose I and
Thutmose II were not sequential, but overlapped substantially. many names were given to one individual and several nations could claim the pharaoh as their own under another title, ie. King,
Abraham - In Genesis 14, Abraham is given the pseudonym of Shem-eber king of Zeboiim (Memphis). Shemeber is translated as "Illustrious." However, it is also a compound name comprised
of Shem (Sabium) and Eber (Hammurabi). These two ancestors were not only kings, but also masters of the sciences, law and philosophy . Abraham was placed in their company, not only with
respect to wisdom, but also in kingship. Zeboiim, that is Memphis, was the ancient seat of kingship and wisdom in Egypt. (Ref: Living in Truth: Archaeology and the Patriarchs by Charles N.

A people called the Amu (Anu) or Hykos invaded Egypt after a great natural catastrophe, when the river was described as 'turning into blood' and the earth shook. They overran Egypt, enslaved
the Egyptians, destroyed valuable records and works of art - murdered, burned and ruled as Pharoahs. The Amu or the Hykos of Egypt and the Amalekites of the Hebrews and Arabs were all of
the one and same nation!
On the ruins of the Amalekite-Hyksos empire rose two kingdoms: Judah and Egypt. The inheritance from the destructionof the Hyksos powr was divided between them. David was made king
over all Israel. And in Egypt and in Egypt , Ahmose I ascended the throne , founding the 18th Dynasty in what Velikovsky dates as 1589 BC

-A monotheist, militant devotee to the worship of Re-Herakhty, the sun-god whom he
believed manifested in the form of Aten, the solar disc. His revolutionary religious
doctrine allowed for no competition. Especially offensive to him was the worship of
Amen, chief deity of Thebes and widely celebrated as the king of the gods. So strong
was his animosity that in an act of theological intolerance never before experienced
in that nation's millennia-long history, he dispatched agents throughout the land to
shut down the god's temples and excise the offensive name from walls, tombs,
statues, and inscriptions.
It was said that one day Akhenaten had a vision wherein he saw a sun disc between
two mountains. He believed he was shown the God Aten, as the Sun Disk - the Light.
He felt guided by Aten to make a change and build a city between the two mountains.
Akhenaten then created a temple (Soloman's Temple) that came to such a great cost
to the kingdom that he sold off entire cities to pay its costs. The population was
forced to labor in Lebanon to work for Hiram, King of Tyre, with groups of ten
thousand people being sent for monthly spells. It is from Tyre and this event the word
Tyranny was born. King Hiram was a personal friend of King David and worked with
Solomon of the building of the temple. References ( - Christopher Knight & Robert Lomas,
The Hiram Key: Pharaohs, Freemasons and the Discovery of the Secret Scrolls of Jesus)
* Pharaoh Akhenaten's Hymn to Aten is the same as Psalm 104 of the Bible.
After the death of Akhenaten, Thutmose III led a revolt against Hatshepsut and
claimed his right to the throne, becoming Pharoah. Hatshepsut disappears from
history at this time and Moses flees from Egypt. (It is believed by some that
Hatshepsut joined Moses)
Akhenaten and Moses Tie to Scotland
Princess Scota was the daughter of Pharaoh Akhenaten named Meritaten. The name
scota was original written as sceadu which has a lot in common with the Egyptian
word shut, the Shadow. Scota is not the name of the Princess but the name of the
attribute, the “stone of destiny” or the “portal”.
Scota gave birth to a boy named Gaedhael or Gadheal Glas. One day Gaedhael was
bitten by a snake and he went to Moses for relief. Moses prayed to God and touched
the bite with his staff. Miraculously the bite healed and Moses gave Gaedhael his
staff stating God commands and I command that this boy’s descendants will live in a
land free from snakes.
At that time Moses was the principal advisor of Pharaoh Akhenaten

Pharaoh Amenophis II -
Famed for his discovery and digging
out of the sands, the Sphinx revealing
the God in its true magnificence
The biblical Old Testament also
describes Thuthmosis IV battle with
King David in the Valley of the GIANTS
"Soon Thutmose IV sent out a large
force to fight against king David in the
valley of the Giants. This was made up
from the armies of the alliance and
troops from Egypt as well. However,
David's army caught them by surprise
and defeated Thutmose IV's force and
drove them all the way back to Egypt's
boundary south of Gaza.
According to legend, Thutmose IV
was hunting near a plateau some ten
miles from Cairo. Tired from his
endeavours, the Prince rested in the
shadow of a mysterious head
protruding from the desert sands. He
fell asleep and, in a dream, heard the
carved stone head whispering to him
that one day he would become ruler of
all Egypt ahead of his older brothers.
The prince was also told that he would
then free the body of the forgotten god
from the desert sands where it had lain
buried for centuries. Awoke refreshed
and, recalling the dream, he silently
committed himself to clearing away the
sands, intrigued that as a younger son,
he could possibly become Pharaoh. He
then left to continue his hunting.
On the death of his father the prophecy
came true, with the former hunter
ascending the throne as Pharaoh
Shortly afterwards the Pharaoh, who
was only to reign for eight years
(1413-1405 BCE), honoured the pledge
made as a younger man and cleared
the area around the Sphinx revealing
the God in its true magnificence.
Tuthmosis IV was x-rayed in the
1970s, evaluating his age at around 35
years old. This accords well with the
historical record, indicating that
Tuthmosis IV must have been around
40-46 when he died

morning around the year 1,482 B.C. Thutmose III first saw a 'UFO'....
Described as; " a CIRCLE of FIRE", emitted no sound, it had no voice',
according to inscriptions. After some days had passed, these things
became more numerous in the skies than ever. "Were extremely bright or
more...than the brightness of the sun, and were relatively small about 16' in
diamater. Thutmose III was taken aboard and flew up to the sky and learned
the secrets of Heaven
".....among the papers of the late Professor Alberto Tulli, former Director of
the Egyptian section of the Vatican Museum. It is a fragment from the Royal
Annals of Thuthmosis III (circa 1504-1450 B.C.) and when translated reads
" 'In the year 22 third month of winter, sixth hour of the day...the scribes of the

of the king looked on and His Majesty was in the midst of it. It was after
supper. Thereupon, they (the fire circles) went up higher directed towards

hovered over the palace while fishes, winged creatures, and other objects
rained down from the sky.

was he that restored the the old worship of Amun, branded Akhenaten a heretic and all
names were changed from 'aten' back to 'amun' . attempted to destroy all trace of him.

- A painting at the tomb of Meresankh III at Giza, from about 2485 B.C., shows white skin and red hair.
- Two statues from about 2570 B.C., found in the tombs at Medum, show Prince Rahotep and his wife Nofret. He has light green stones for eyes. She has violet-blue stones.
- A painting from Iteti's tomb at Saqqara shows a very Nordic-looking man with blond hair.
- Grafton Smith mentions the distinctly red hair of the 18th Dynasty mummy Henutmehet.
- Harvard Professor Carleton Coon, in his book THE RACES OF EUROPE, tells us that "many of the officials, courtiers, and priests, representing the upper class of Egyptian
society but not the royalty, looked strikingly like modern Europeans, especially long-headed ones." (Note: Nordics are long-headed.) Long-headed Europeans are most
common in Britain, Scandinavia, the Netherlands, and northern Germany.
- Time-Life books put out a volume called RAMESES II THE GREAT. It has a good picture of the blond mummy of Rameses II. Another picture can be found in the book X-RAYING
THE PHARAOHS, especially the picture on the jacket cover. It shows his yellow hair.
- A book called CHRONICLE OF THE PHARAOHS was recently published showing paintings, sculptures and mummies of 189 pharaohs and leading personalities of Ancient
Egypt. Of these, 102 appear European, 13 look Black, and the rest are hard to classify. All nine mummies look like our Europeans.
- The very first pharaoh, Narmer, also known as Menes, looks very Caucasion
upper class men as red and upper class women as white; this is because the men became sun-burned or tanned while
- The same can be said for Khufu's cousin Hemon, who designed the Great Pyramid of Giza, with help from Imhotep. A computer-generated reconstruction of the face of the
Sphinx shows a European-looking face. It was once painted sunburned red. The Egyptians often painted
outside under the burning Egyptian sun. The women, however, usually stayed inside.
- In 1902, E. A. Wallis Budge, the renowned Egyptologist, described the pre-dynastic Egyptians thus:
- "The predynastic Egyptians, that is to say, that stratum of them which was indigenous to North Africa, belonged to a white or light-skinned race with fair hair, who in many
particulars resembled the Libyans, who in later historical times lived very near the western bank of the Nile." [E. A. W. Budge, Egypt in the Neolithic and Archaic Periods (London:
Kegan Paul, Trench & TrÃ¼bner, 1902), p. 49.]
- Later, in the same book, Budge referred to a pre-dynastic statuette that: "has eyes inlaid with lapis-lazuli, by which we are probably intended to understand that the woman here
represented had blue eyes." [Ibid., p. 51.]
- In 1925, the Oxford don L. H. Dudley Buxton, wrote the following concerning ancient Egyptian crania:
- "Among the ancient crania from the Thebaid in the collection in the Department of Human Anatomy in Oxford, there are specimens which must unhesitatingly be considered to
be those of Nordic type. [L. H. D. Buxton, The Peoples of Asia (London: Kegan Paul, Trench & TrÃ¼bner, 1925), p. 50.]
- The Scottish physical anthropologist Robert Gayre has written, that in his considered opinion:
- "Ancient Egypt, for instance, was essentially a penetration of Caucasoid racial elements into Africa . . . This civilisation grew out of the settlement of Mediterraneans, Armenoids,
even Nordics, and Atlantics in North Africa . . ." [R. Gayre of Gayre, Miscellaneous Racial Studies, 1943-1972 (Edinburgh: Armorial, 1972), p. 85.]
- When English archaeologist Howard Carter excavated the tomb of Tutankhamen in 1922, he discovered in the Treasury a small wooden sarcophagus. Within it lay a memento
of Tutankhamen's beloved grandmother, Queen Tiye: "a curl of her auburn hair." [C. Desroches-Noblecourt, Tutankhamen: Life and Death of a Pharaoh (Harmondsworth:
Penguin Books, 1972), p. 65.] (See mummy picture)
- Queen Tiye (18th Dynasty), was the daughter of Thuya, a Priestess of the God Amun. Thuya's mummy, which was found in 1905, has long, red-blonde hair. Examinations of
Tiye's mummy proved that she bore a striking resemblance to her mother. [B. Adams, Egyptian Mummies (Aylesbury: Shire Publications, 1988), p. 39.] (See mummy picture)
- A painting of the mother of Pharaoh Amenhotep IV (18th Dynasty), reveals that she had blonde hair, blue eyes and a rosy complexion. [W. Sieglin, Die blonden Haare der
indogermanischen VÃ¶lker des Altertums (Munich: J. F. Lehmanns Verlag, 1935), p. 132.]
- Princess Ranofri, a daughter of Pharaoh Tuthmosis III (18th Dynasty), is depicted as a blonde in a wall painting that was recorded in the 19th century, by the Italian Egyptologist
Ippolito Rosellini. [Ibid., p. 132.]
- In 1929 archaeologists discovered the mummy of fifty year-old Queen Meryet-Amun (another daughter of Tuthmosis III); the mummy has wavy, light-brown hair. [R. B. Partridge,
Faces of Pharaohs (London: Rubicon Press, 1994), p. 91.]
- American Egyptologist Donald P. Ryan excavated tomb KV 60, in the Valley of the Kings, during the course of 1989. Inside, he found the mummy of a royal female, which he
believes to be the long-lost remains of the great Queen Hatshepsut (18th Dynasty). Ryan describes the mummy as follows:
- "The mummy was mostly unwrapped and on its back. Strands of reddish-blond hair lay on the floor beneath the bald head." [Ibid., p. 87.]
- Manetho, a Graeco-Egyptian priest who flourished in the 3rd century BC, wrote in his Egyptian History, that the last ruler of the 6th Dynasty was a woman by the name of Queen
Nitocris. He has this to say about her:
- "There was a queen Nitocris, braver than all the men of her time, the most beautiful of all the women, blonde-haired with rosy cheeks. By her, it is said, the third pyramid was
reared, with the aspect of a mountain." [W. G. Waddell, Manetho (London: William Heinemann, 1980), p. 57.]
- According to the Graeco-Roman authors Pliny the Elder, Strabo and Diodorus Siculus, the Third Pyramid was built by a woman named Rhodopis. When translated from the
original Greek, her name means "rosy-cheeked". [G. A. Wainwright, The Sky-Religion in Egypt (Cambridge: University Press, 1938), p. 42.]
- We may also note that a tomb painting recorded by the German Egyptologist C. R. Lepsius in the 1840s, depicts a blonde woman by the name of Hetepheres (circa 5th
Dynasty). The German scholar Alexander Scharff, observed that she was described as being a Priestess of the Goddess Neith, a deity who was sacred to the blond-haired
Libyans of the Delta region. He goes on to state that her name is precisely the same as that of Queen Hetepheres II, who is also shown as fair-haired, in a painting on the wall
of Queen Meresankh III's tomb. He deduced from all of this, that the two women may well have been related, and he suggested that Egypt during the Age of the Pyramids, was
dominated by an elite of blonde women. [A. Scharff, "Ein Beitrag zur Chronologie der 4. Ã¤gyptischen Dynastie." Orientalistische Literaturzeitung XXXI (1928) pp. 73-81.]
- The twentieth prayer of the 141st chapter of the ancient Egyptian Book of the Dead, is dedicated "to the Goddess greatly beloved, with red hair." [E. A. W. Budge, The Book of the
Dead (London: Kegan Paul, Trench & TrÃ¼bner, 1901), p. 430.] In the tomb of Pharaoh Merenptah (19th Dynasty), there are depictions of red-haired goddesses. [N. Reeves &
R. H. Wilkinson, The Complete Valley of the Kings (London: Thames & Hudson, 1997), p. 149.]
- In the Book of the Dead, the eyes of the god Horus are described as "shining," or "brilliant," whilst another passage refers more explicitly to "Horus of the blue eyes". [Budge, op.
cit., pp. 421 & 602.] The rubric to the 140th chapter of said book, states that the amulet known as the "Eye of Horus," (used to ward-off the "Evil Eye"), must always be made from
lapis-lazuli, a mineral which is blue in colour. [Ibid., p. 427.] It should be noted that the Goddess Wadjet, who symbolised the Divine Eye of Horus, was represented by a snake
(a hooded cobra to be precise), and her name, when translated from the original Egyptian, means "blue-green". [A. F. Alford, The Phoenix Solution (London: Hodder &
Stoughton, 1998), pp. 266-268.] Interestingly, the ancient Scandanavians claimed that anyone who was blue-eyed (and therefore possessed the power of the Evil Eye), had "a
snake in the eye," and blue eyes were frequently compared to the eyes of a serpent. [F. B. Gummere, Germanic Origins (London: David Nutt, 1892), pp. 58, 62.]
- In the ancient Pyramid Texts, the Gods are said to have blue and green eyes. [Alford, op. cit., p. 232.] The Graeco-Roman author Diodorus Siculus (I, 12), says that the Egyptians
thought the goddess Neith had blue eyes. [C. H. Oldfather, Diodorus of Sicily (London: William Heinemann, 1968), p. 45.]
- A text from the mammisi of Isis at Denderah, declares that the goddess was given birth to in the form of a "ruddy woman". [J. G. Griffiths, De Iside et Osiride (Cardiff: University of
Wales Press, 1970), p. 451.] Finally, the Greek author Plutarch, in the 22nd chapter of his De Iside et Osiride, states that the Egyptians thought Horus to be fair-skinned, and the
god Seth to be of a ruddy complexion. [Ibid., p. 151.]
