Khufu
Birth: unknown, Egypt
Death: unknown, Egypt

Egyptian Pharaoh. He came to the throne in 2589 BC and ruled for approximately twenty three years as the second king of the Fourth Dynasty. His reign saw military expeditions into Sinai, Nubia and Libya and, according to later Egyptian folklore; he was a ruthless ruler who was remembered for his cruelty to his people and family. He is famous as the builder of one of the original seven wonders of the ancient world, the Great Pyramid at Giza, the first to be built there and the largest ever erected in Egypt. His well preserved solar barge was discovered in a pit next to his pyramid in 1954 and has become one of the icons of Egyptian Archaeology. (bio by: js)
