The canon of Egyptian art was designed to make everyone look hot. The hotness of the pharaoh represented his or her health and thus the health of Egypt. That said, some pharaohs made it work more than others.
Here are the 5 hottest Egyptian pharaohs, in reverse historical order.
5. Nectanebo I, Dynasty 30 A return to the classical canon after centuries of experimentation, and a return to the classic hotness of the pharaoh.
4. Hatshepsut, Dynasty 18
Speaking of Hatshepsut, this woman had brains, confidence, class, and was not averse to showing a little leg.
3. Sobekneferu, Dynasty 12
This female pharaoh of the Middle Kingdom was making male costume look hot generations before Hatshepsut.
#2 – Senuseret III, Dynasty 12
The soft modeling of Middle Kingdom statuary gave this king tired eyes and Dumbo ears, but his body is still ripped. As Henry Jones, PhD, once said, “It’s not the years, honey, it’s the mileage.”
#1 – Menkaure, Dynasty 4
He built a pyramid, carved the Sphinx, and still had time for the ladies.
