Who will end up with more governmental monuments to himself, Obama or Ramses II?
Ramses II was also interested in architecture and that interest resulted in the erection of more monuments than any of the other ancient Egyptian pharaohs. A significant number of architectural tributes still dominate the landscape of Egypt today, attributed to Ramses 2. The Ramses II monument at Abu Simbel is the most famous of all. Menataph, son of Ramses II, gained control of the throne upon the death of his father and the 19th Dynasty ended with his rule.
