So the pharaoh was important when it came to temple practice in Ancient Egypt and had a big part in upholding Ma’at.
They often linked themselves to deities by stating that they had a divine parent and that they themselves represent deities of myth.
These days, unless you’re a Kemetic Orthodox, you don’t have a leader in this way.
What do you think about the ancient Egyptian Pharaohs? Were they integral in upholding Ma’at? How do they connect to modern Kemeticism or do they not? Was a pharaoh only needed in that society at that time?
Leads onto a separate question: How do you separate ancient politics from Ancient Egyptian beliefs? Did Pharaohs believe that they were divine or were they presenting themselves this way as a form of ancient propaganda to solidify their rule?
If you are of a Kemetic Orthodox persuasion, how would you explain the role of Pharaoh then and now?
