Pharaoh Tutankhamun of Egypt

22 Egyptian Royal Mummies Moved to Cairo Museum in ‘Golden Parade’ of Pharaohs

Fireworks, chariots, and a naval procession crossing the Nile are expected to accompany the event. The mummified bodies of the ancient rulers will then be restored by scientists, so that they can be exhibited at the Royal Mummies Hall.

The so-called “Golden Parade” is hitting the Egyptian capital’s streets. Ancient mummies of 18 kings and four queens are being relocated from the Egyptian Museum in Tahrir Square to the National Museum of Egyptian Civilisation (NMEC), and modern Egyptians are lining the route to cheer for their ancient rulers.

The list of the kings and queens includes royals from 17th, 18th, 19th and 20th dynasties, such as Ramesses II (also known as Ozymandias, or Ramesses the Great, one of the most glorious pharaohs in history), Queen Hatshepsut and Queen Ahmose-Nefertari.
