Following is the best list of Pharaohs that I could assemble. It is from The Ancient Egypt Site (AES below) and the Ancient Egypt (AE below) site, and from Wikipedia. These sites have a lot of information and internally consistent time lines, although they differ from each other. All the hieroglyphic names up to the 15th Dynasty are from these websites. Unfortunately the Ancient Egypt Site (the first one above) is built for Internet Explorer, and doesn't work well with other browsers, the pages are all messed up in Firefox for instance.

The Ancient Egypt Site has detailed information up to the 15th Dynasty. The site Ancient Egypt also has a lot of information. I link to that site as well. For later Pharaohs I link to the Wikipedia website, which also has a lot of information.

Putting dates to the different Pharaohs is very difficult. At first I intended to collect dates from different sources and aggregate them into a "best" list. It quickly became apparent that this wouldn't work. The dates between different sources are just too different. I ended up using a consistent time-line from the Ancient Egypt site up to the Persian rule, with only a few modifications where this source either did not have any information or inconsistent information. From the Persian rule on I relied on Wikipedia.

I have tried to find the names of the Pharaohs in hieroglyphs, and correlating the ones that I took pictures of with the names of the Pharaohs in the following lists. Dan McCarthy was a huge help in identified various Pharaoh names in pictures of Cartouches that I took.

Pharaohs had several names, see Cartouches.
