Karnak king list
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Drawing of the list in 1843
The Karnak king list was located in the southwest corner of the Akh-Menu Hall. Composed during the reign of Thutmose III, it listed sixty-one kings beginning with Sneferu from Egypt's Old Kingdom. Only the names of thirty-nine kings are still legible, and one is not written in a cartouche.
It is not a complete list of the Egyptian Pharaohs, as other kings are known from other ancient lists, but this list is valuable as it contains the names of kings of the First and Second Intermediate periods, which are omitted in most other king lists.
It was first described by James Burton in 1825 and French adventurer Emile Prisse dismantled and "stole" the blocks containing the king list at night in 1843. At the same time, a German expedition led by Egyptologist Karl Richard Lepsius was making its way up the Nile to Karnak. In order to secure it for France, Prisse made quick work of dismantling it and sending it back home. Severely damaged, it is now on display at the Louvre in Paris.

Description of the list
The list contain the name of the Pharaoh followed by the actual one inscribed on the list. The list comprises three sections and is divided at the center. The numbering follows Lepsius, counting from the sides, toward the center.

List of pharaohs
This list is a much harder list to compile. The list has been extremely tainted by the following cultures own political interests.
Ancient Egyptians, Hyksos, 1350-300 Egyptians, Greek Ptolemaic Egyptians, romans, Greek's, Christians, Muslims x4(separate times), Coptic Christians, the Vatican, modern academics, etc.
The history of each portion of Egyptology has been altered to hide what each one in turn did not like. For the information which has been presented post Italic; what has bee most not liked are two very important portions of Egyptology.
First the monotheistic version polytheistic concepts; for some reason (probably the Jewish issues) the Romans did not like anything to do with Jewish or monotheistic aspects of Egyptology so they hid them best as possible. The Vatican liked Jews even less; so the most out of Egyptology we have regarding the Jewish presence is the exodus; but that does not account for why the Jews were slaves in Egypt in the first place. How they the Jews were slaves (only about 100 years). How the Jews first arrived in Egypt. Of course we have biblical references to the Jews already in Egypt and thriving because that is where Abraham picked up his slave girl Hagar; from which the tradition of Islam comes.
The second being the resurrection concept. Which is one of the most powerful concepts in all literature; second only to extremely advanced technology which then produces time travel. Time travel of course is the number one most feared concept to all western and middle eastern cultures.
Dividing the king list by culture and influence
Exactly how the above lists can be divided to reflect the actual cultures from the 2600 years of gathered evidence has proven to be a difficult task. Compounded by the facts regarding not all of the various hieroglyphic languages have been fully transited into western academic literature. Key phrases, religious contexts, etc. the full significance of said is partially lost. Indo-European language/s have been found within the framework of their descendant languages but how the framework of Indo-European language actually works is still a mystery to academics.
Divided Kings list
The following are adjusted pharaoh lists for Egyptology.
Based on the above research I want to divide the entire Pharaonic list into six sections.
1 eastern upper
2 eastern lower
3 unified upper and lower pharaohs
4 western pharaohs
Which itself needs to be divided into two sections.
Four A; Pre-Egyptian pharaohs; Adam, Abraham, Noah,
Four B; Post Abraham Egyptian pharaohs. Jacob down to the Hyksos invasion.
5 (rare but it happened; according to evidence) Unified, western(monotheistic), upper, and lower pharaoh. Only a few managed to achieve this goal.
6 Hyksos pharaohs from Esau's line.
Six a preconquering the all of Egypt including western Egypt
Six b post conquering the all of Egypt including western Egypt.
