The First Pharaoh 9


The wedding finally takes place.

Naser and El-Or become husband and wife, and El-Or adopts the name of Nerth-Hotep. Naser and Nerth-Hotep are very much in love, and after spending some months on the Nile, they reach the city that Naser and Anhotep planned as the capital. Inabu-hedj has become a magnificent city, and it is Naser’s plan to make his wife seer of architects and thus use her qualities in a useful way. I like the snippets of humour the author occasionally throws, as when Anhotep confesses that all those on Naser’s boat witnessed the newlyweds making love as Naser forgot to put out the lights in their tent, and everybody could see the motion of their shadows.
