King Lists

   Lists of kings and their reign lengths seem to have been kept in early dynastic times for religious and chronological use. No complete list has survived, but the Turin Royal Canon written during the Ramesside Periodis the most complete record with many ex act reign lengths. Other offering lists to deceased kings appear in tombsand temples. One difficulty with these lists lies in the fact that some rulers reigned contemporaneously as coregentsor rivals, which is rarely indicated.
