About This Quiz

Ancient Egypt is more than just the patch of land on the northeastern corner of the African continent. For a huge swath of human civilization, Egypt was among the most civilized, progressive, prosperous civilization in the world. It was first unified a full five thousand years ago and remained intact until the conquest of Alexander the Great in 332 BC. 

That's pretty much the longest period in the history of the world where a single country has managed to last. It wasn't all plain sailing, and territories were gained and lost and gained and lost again, but generally speaking, Egypt was a continuous presence. The River Nile was the source of much of its wealth, connecting it to the Mediterranean Sea and providing fresh water for miles upon miles of fertile land.

The last Pharoah, Cleopatra, is the best known, along with her Roman lover Mark Antony. However, there were other great Egyptian duos. The gods Isis and Osiris were worshiped for millennia. The great Pharaoh Akhenaten and his beloved wife Nefertiti ruled as an equal pair and built some of the greatest structures in history, bringing prosperity to the realm for decades. The first Pharoah of the Ptolemaic Dynasty, the line of Alexander, was ruled by Ptolemy I Soter, who had three wives and only really understood marriage once he met Berenice, his last and most trusted and treasured wife.
