Ancient Egyptian history is a long and complex one with more than 3,000 years of details. Throughout these 3,000 years, ancient Egyptians lived under about 30 dynasties, with each dynasty being based on the lineage of the kings and pharaohs. Throughout all these years, the country experienced many changes, some being very drastic.

The land began as two Upper and Lower Egypt, with King Menes uniting the two regions at around 3,500 B.C. From this point on, the pharaohs were referred to as the rulers of the Two Kingdoms. In art and on tombs, the pharaohs were now depicted with the crowns of Upper and Lower Egypt combined to become one crown, known as the pschent.

The reason for the difference in names refers to the flow of the life-giving Nile River. Being that the Nile flows from East Africa highland down to the Mediterranean Sea, Southern Egypt became known as Upper Egypt and Northern Egypt became known as Lower Egypt. As these two regions developed independently of each other, the differences between them were evident after the unification of the country, even though customs from both regions were combined.
