Ancient Egyptian Cartouche

If you want to be a king for Egypt as well you built a pyramid or your own tomb you have to put  your title name in Cartouche, Cartouche it's not just a looped rope that has the name of the king written inside  with magical power,

But it also protects the king's soul all his life then moves with the king to the afterlife to give him the power between the gods, then he could say his name then turns to be a god, and rest with them in paradise.

The mark

The cartridge means "Shenou" in the ancient Egyptian language. This name comes from the verb "Sheni," which means "to surround." As the primitive cartridge, it is found in the form of a circle that "circles" the king's name, and this circle represents the solar disc or everything that surrounds the sun, i.e. the pharaoh's world. Two interpretations are reasonable and correct. But this circle expanded and stretched fast until the full name of the pharaoh could be understood.

Egyptian Cartouche

So only a few round-shaped cartridges were made known. Old usage and description, We can find that the cartouches appear in a double cord knotted on both ends by means of a few bas-reliefs of King Sahi Ra of the Fifth Dynasty. As far as the king was concerned, he worked in the pyramid of Saqqara at the door of his funeral room with inscriptions with his new names and functions, followed by a round cartridge.

There is no doubt that during Pharaoh Senefru's reign the oldest cartouches that we know were surrounded by the king's name. The royal name (fifth in the list of titles and royal positions) has been mentioned in this regard.
The pharaoh's personal name was added to the cartouche frame during the reign of the Fifth Dynasty. Then the pharaoh's fourth and fifth names were always included in the range of the cartouches and, therefore, it was clear at first glance that the king had a certain building or origins.

We must admit that there is no new or new idea of registering the domain name in a form. The name of the king, or rather "Horus," was therefore written in the so-called serekh, an ornate facade of the palace or grave of the king, topped by the falcon Horus, and was certainly aforetime. The name is thus recorded in the first family. Here's the king's name "Narmer" on top of his famous painting, recorded in the Sarakht from ancient times.
