The interest in the Turin Papyrus, which records the names of the kings of ancient Egypt, began with its study by Champollion at the Turin museum in 1924. It was followed by the efforts of other sch-olars, who recognized its importance as the first papyrus to acc-urately record the timeline of Egyptian kings since the beginning of the coronation of kings in prehistory, proving that Egypt’s civilization was the most ancient worldwide with its system, governance, and administration, in commemoration of the major events that it exp-erienced, and in following up on the lineage and sequence of its kings. However, this importance quickly faded, and the content of the papyrus about those first periods, dating back to 36.620 years before the rule of King “Narmer” BC, was ignored. This is evidenced by most studies on the beginnings of the ancient Egyptian civilization that began with the attempts to unite Egypt, especially in 3000 BC, where the rule of the main king of unity began. This motivated me to explore this theme in an effort to determine the importance of this papyrus and the truth about the beginning of the rule of kings in ancient Egypt.
