"They say the pharaohs were all buried with heaps of gold and gems. Picture us finding some old pharaoh’s final resting place."
Jack Sparrow to Christophe-Julien de Rapièr[src]

Pharaoh was a title used by the ancient Egyptian rulers of all periods. The title originates in the term "pr-aa" which means "great house" and describes the royal palace. The title of Pharaoh started being used for the king during the Egyptian New Kingdom, specifically during the middle of the eighteenth dynasty. The title was also used by the rulers of the mythical island of Kerma.
