Pharaoh is the common title of the monarchs of ancient Egypt from the First Dynasty (3150 BC) until the annexation of Egypt by the Roman Empire in 30 BC. One of the roles of the pharaoh was as an intermediary between the gods and the people. His role was both as civil and religious administrator. He owned all of the land in Egypt, enacted laws, collected taxes, and defended Egypt from invaders as the commander-in-chief of the army.
