fourth pharaoh in the IV Dynasty, ascended to the throne as his brother Radjedef’s successor. He too, conquered soon, with the decisiveness of his manners and actions, the reputation of a cruel tyrant, able to keep Egypt in an iron fist, and to pursue an expansionist politic toward the Sinai and Palestine regions.Beautiful representations of Chefren have reached us: the most
monumental and famous is undoubtly the one recognized in the
