He was 25 years old when he claimed the double crown of Egypt. By the time he died at age 92, he had transformed his nation and carved out a place in history as one of the most fabled rulers of all time RAMSES THE GREAT.
In this definitive program, commentary from leading historians and extensive location footage help uncover many mysteries behind the life and rule of the legendary ruler. How did he succeed to the throne despite not being the crown prince, and once there, how did he secure his power? Was he responsible for the Exodus, or was one of his sons? What motivated him to carry out the greatest building program in Egypt since the pyramids, and did the same thing drive him to sire over 100 children?
By exploring these and other questions, an intimate portrait of a long-vanished ruler emerges. And a look at a newly discovered tomb in the Valley of the Kings promises to reveal his complete story.
