Historical Info Edit

Ramesses ruled Egypt for 33 years after usurping the throne from his brother. Under his rule the empire blossomed, reaching from Syria to the fourth cataract of the Nile. He is noted for the splendor of the monuments, temples, and other buildings he distributed liberally throughout the country. However, the rise of luxury, slavery, and mercenary armies during his reign fostered the indolence that led to the eventual decline of the Egyptian empire. The Egyptians are great builders. Under Ramesses they can be expected to construct mighty cities and can be a significant threat if allowed to expand over a large area.
