King Pepi II
The final great pharaoh of the era of the pyramids was Pepi II, whose reign lasted for a century. He had inherited the throne of a wealthy, foreign policy-making Egypt at the age of six.
He was helped by the Vizier Djau and Harkhuf when he ascended the throne about six years after the death of his brother Merenre, and thanks to them he found a very prosperous Egypt when he reached the sufficient age. He was a peaceful and friendly king, who created a tax policy that favored cities and people thus earning their loyalty. Kingdom for over ninety years, it survived almost all of its queens and is said to have had a relationship with General Sasenet as well. He was buried in his pyramid at Saqqara.
Pepi II seems to have continued his predecessors' foreign policy in similar ways. Alabaster was quarried from Hatnub, while copper and turquoise were mined in the Sinai's Wadi Maghareh. The Phoenician city of Byblos has inscriptions that mention him.
