Complete Royal Families of Ancient Egypt by Aidan Dodson
Book DescriptionThis groundbreaking new book illuminates the lives of the kings, queens, princes and princesses of ancient Egypt, unravelling family relationships and exploring the parts they played in politics, cultural life and religion. It ranges from the dawn of Egyptian history, when only isolated glimpses are available of the royal family, through the vast progeny of Ramesses II, and ends with the fiendishly complicated - and blood-soaked - interconnections of the Ptolemies and Cleopatras.

UK Kirkus Review » The lives of the ancient Egyptian royal families reads like the world's oldest and greatest soap opera, with sex scandals and intrigue, murders and feuds. Any attempt to condense the story into a single volume is fraught with difficulty as it covers 3000 years and many hundreds of known members of the various dynasties. Dodson and Hilton have managed to accomplish the near-impossible by producing what is at once a highly-readable account and also an invaluable reference book that unravels the complex web of relationships. They also show what part individual members of the royal families played in the unfolding of ancient history. Many of the figures are little known, even to academics, but in some cases they had a profound effect on what happened to better-known names in Egypt. The book is printed on glossy paper and comes with more than 300 illustrations, 90 of them in colour. A sumptuous product. (Kirkus UK)
