This is the first part of a series of articles on Ramesses II, perhaps even better known as Ramesses the Great, the third ruler of Egypt's 19th Dynasty during the prosperous New Kingdom.Future parts of this series will explore this great Egyptian Pharaoh as a builder, husband and father, military leader and deity, among other topics.
Scholars cannot prove that there is a real relationship between Moses and Ramesses II because it is unclear if Ramesses II is the pharaoh mentioned in conjunction with Moses in the Bible. In fact, scholars even squabble over whether there were two pharaohs or just one during the time Moses spent in Egypt.
Ramses I ruled Egypt for a little over one year, around 1300 BCE, but it was Ramses II, pharaoh from around 1290 to 1224 BCE, who built the city of Ramses (Pi-Ramesses). As the Bible tells us that.
Ramses II had 200 wives, 96 sons, and 60 daughters. By the time he was Pharaoh, he had 20 children. In the film, only one son is seen and none of his wives or daughters are there.

Some historians think that Ramses was the pharaoh from the Bible who Moses demanded that he free the Israelites. It is thought that he had nearly 200 children during his long life. His son Merneptah became pharaoh after he died. Merneptah.
Battle of Kadesh - Misinformation: Opposing Ramses was the army of Muwatalli II which was encamped near Kadesh. In an effort to deceive Ramses, he planted two nomads in the path of the Egyptian advance with false information regarding the army's location and shifted his camp behind the city to east.
According to the Bible, in Exodus 1:22-2:10, Pharaoh gave the command that every son who was born of the Hebrews should be cast into the river. So fearing the child's life, the mother of Moses hid him in a basket in the reeds along the bank of the Nile. While Pharaoh’s daughter was walking along the riverside she found him and raised him as her son. Although the Bible never records her name.
