King Hor-Aha | Horus Aha King
Aha is identified as the second pharaoh of the first dynasty by seal impressions found in the tombs of Merytneit and Qaa at Umm el-Qaab by G. Dreyer. Six Narmer, the man who came before him, had combined Upper and Lower Egypt into one kingdom. Aha most likely came to the throne in the late xxxxii century BC, early xxi century BC, or early xxxxi century BC. Manetho claims that he ascended to the throne at the age of thirty and ruled Egypt until he was roughly sixty years old.
Aha ( 3100 B.C.), Horu's name (Hor-Aha), was an Egyptian pharaoh, belonging to the 1st dynasty. The name Aha appears in the Palermo Stone as a unifier of Egypt. This fact, combined with the discovery of an ivory tablet where, together with the name Aha, the hieroglyph mn (referring to King Menes) is reported, has led some scholars to assume that (Narmer - Menes - Aha) are names of the same ruler.
An ebony tablet found in Abydos commemorates a campaign against the Nubians. The extension of the southern border to the region of Elephantine may be due to him. In other inscriptions, his name is accompanied by Receiving Upper and Lower Egypt, and therefore it is likely that Aha worked to strengthen the work of Narmer, his predecessor.
His father was King Narmer and his mother was Queen Neithhotep. The marriage between his parents was originally a political union. Neithhotep was a princess of Lower Egypt and Narmer was a king of Upper Egypt. The marriage surely provided the primary unification of Upper and Lower Egypt. The unification of Egypt was not completed until the end of the second dynasty. He is believed to have built a Mastaba Tomb in honor of his mother Queen Neithhotep at Naqada, near This. Egypt offers tourist sites that will remain engraved in your memory after a visit among which Cairo Top Tours remains the best in organizing trips to the Pharaonic land.
Hor-Aha has been the subject of controversy. Some believe that he is the pharaoh Mines, who succeeded in unifying Egypt. Others claim that he was the son of Narmer, the pharaoh who unified Egypt. And that Narmer and Mines could be one and the same person who considered himself the person who unified Egypt.
