Ramesses II, also known as Ramesses the Great, was the third pharaoh of the Nineteenth Dynasty of Egypt. He is often regarded as the greatest, most celebrated, and most powerful pharaoh of the Egyptian Empire.
Ramesses is mentioned in a book called "Lifestyles of the Pharaohs", in relation to being the pharaoh that Kiya was consort to. Ramesses died before his marriage to Kiya was consummated, but she was chosen to accompany him on his journey through the afterlife.
