the history

god Re is the sun god and has three manifestations; Tell me in the morning, come at noon, and come at dusk. It is impossible to determine the historical moment in which the doctrine of the sun embraced the concepts of the new monarchy, and the early evidence in this field appears in the name of the second king of the second dynasty (Ra-neb), which means (god Re the Master), and King (Zosser) of the third dynasty bore the title ( Ra the Golden) and it seems that both the previous kings united themselves with ( god Re)

albeit as his sons, but that unification was not long-term as the subsequent kings abandoned it, then (Khafre and Menkaure) of the fourth dynasty were the first two kings to add the title ( son of Ra) i.e. (Son of the Sun) to their titles, and that title was also carried by three kings near the end of the Fifth Dynasty: Ni, Sarra, Jed Kare, and Unas. Then that title became an inseparable part of the king’s names from the Sixth Dynasty until the end of Egyptian history. The old name, as this title was preceded by the personal name of the king with whom he was born.

Thus, it became apparent that the king was considered since his birth as a son of the  god Re, and earlier on that and since the king (grandfather of a branch) of the Fourth Dynasty, the names of the kings of some of this family were a compound of the name (god Re) sometimes since their birth or when ascending the throne if The birth name did not include the compound element of the  god Re. 

 

According to a late legend, the kings of the Fifth Dynasty were children of the  god Re, and according to a later legend, the kings of the Fifth Dynasty were children of the  god Re from the wife of one of the priests of the sun. The sun during the era of this dynasty whose kings built temples to the sun, modeled on the ancient Temple of the Sun in Heliopolis.

 

The truth is that although the singular position of the  god Re had begun to decline somewhat towards the end of the Fifth Dynasty, his doctrine had already been carried out to the core of the Egyptian religion, and he found many local deities with (  god Re). In the early scenes, the falcon (Horus of the Edfu) was clearly depicted as it fluttered above the king’s head, but this view changed after that

and the winged sun disk became protecting the title of Upper and Lower Egypt with its wings. ) which is associated with the name of the king, and all of this decides the complete mixing between (  god Re and Horus) and the king in the doctrine of the sacred monarchy.
