LITTLE HISTORY OF THE EGYPTIAN GALLEYS
Ancient Egypt did not have much naval tradition, although it is true that it had a river fleet to be able to navigate the most important and famous river in the country: the Nile, the source of life for the Egyptians. All that changed somewhat with the arrival of the New Kingdom when it received external maritime threats.
For this reason, Pharaoh Ramses III (1184-1153 BC) decided to build war vessels that managed to stop the incursions: the Egyptian galleys. In this way, Egypt let its enemies see that it could already defend itself against the invaders coming from the sea, as in the well-known Battle of the Delta, which took place in 1177 BC.
The pharaohs used the war galleys in all their conflicts and also for other transportation purposes. Now we present to you the wooden model for kids of Cleopatra’s Galley. Guaranteed entertainment for the little ones in the house as well as for their parents and grandparents.
