The most powerful person in ancient Egypt was the Pharaoh. He was the political and religious leader of the Egyptian people. The Pharaoh was the ruler of Upper and Lower Egypt. He owned all of the land, made laws, collected taxes, and defended Egypt against foreigners. As High Priest of Every Temple, the Pharaoh represented the gods on Earth. He performed rituals and built temples to honor the gods. Many Pharaohs went to war when their land was threatened or when they wanted to control foreign lands. If the Pharaoh won the battle, the conquered people had to recognize the Egyptian Pharaoh as their ruler and offer him the finest and most valuable goods from their land. This Pharaoh Character jug designed by Robert Tabbenor was the last flambé character jug to be produced by Royal Doulton at the Stoke-on-Trent studio. It was issued by Lawleys By Post in 1996 in a limited edition of 1,500.
