Pharaoh Narmer Eaten by Hippo: Succeeded by Aha

3080 BC, December 31, Wednesday –Egypt:

Narmer (previously known as Menes), first Pharaoh of Egypt, famous for uniting the north and south into one mighty powerful Egyptian kingdom, was rather unceremoniously eaten by a hungry, hungry hippo on the Nile River.

Narmer founded the White Wall to commemorate the unification of Egypt. He was buried at Abydos.

Narmer was succeeded to throne with much ceremony by his son Aha (aka Hor-Aha, and Horus-Aha) whose name means “fighter.”
