Egyptians were and are Caucasian and there ethnicity Semitic.

The mummy of the wife of King Tutankhamen has auburn hair.

A mummy with red hair, red mustache and red beard was found
by the pyramids at Saqqara.

Red-haired mummies were found in the crocodile-caverns of Aboufaida.

The book HISTORY OF EGYPTIAN MUMMIES mentions a mummy with reddish-brown hair.

The mummies of Rameses II and Prince Yuaa have fine silky yellow hair. The
mummy of another pharaoh, Thothmes II, has light chestnut-colored hair.

An article in a leading British anthropological journal states that many mummies have dark reddish-brownhair. Professor Vacher De Lapouge described a blond mummy found at Al Amrah, which he says has the face and skull measurements of a typical Gaul or Saxon.

A blond mummy was found at Kawamil along with many
chestnut-colored ones.

Chestnut-haired mummies have been found at Silsileh.

The mummy of Queen Tiy has "wavy brown hair."

Unfortunately, only the mummies of a very few pharaohs have survived to
the 20th century, but a large proportion of these are blond.

The Egyptians have left us many paintings and statues of blondes and redheads. Amenhotep III's tomb painting shows him as having light red hair. Also, his features are quite caucasian

A farm scene from around 2000 B.C. in the tomb of the nobleman
Meketre shows redheads.

An Egyptian scribe named Kay at Sakkarah around 2500 B.C. has blue eyes.

The tomb of Menna (18th Dynasty) at West Thebes shows blond girls.
The god Horus is usually depicted as white. He is very white in the Papyrus Book of the Dead of Lady Cheritwebeshet (21st Dynasty), found in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo.

A very striking painting of a yellow-haired man hunting from a chariot can be found in the tomb of Userhet, Royal Scribe of Amenophis II. The yellow-haired man is Userhet. The same tomb has paintings of blond soldiers. The tomb of Menna also has a wall painting showing a blond man supervising two
dark-haired workers scooping grain.


The Funerary stele (inscribed stone slab)of Priest Remi clearly shows him as having red hair,

The eye of Horus, the so-called Wedjat Eye. is always blue.

A very attractive painting is found on the wall of a private tomb in West Thebes from the 18th Dynasty. The two deceased parents are white people with black hair. Mourning them are two pretty fair-skinned girls with light blond hair and their red-haired older brother.


Queen Thi is painted as having a rosy complexion, blue eyes and blond hair. She was co-ruler with her husband Amenhotep III and it has been said of their rule. "The reign of Amenhotep III was the culminating point in Egyptian history, for never again, in spite of the exalted effort of the Ramessides, did Egypt
occupy so exalted a place among the nations of the world as she had in
his time."

Amenhotep III looks northern European in his statues.

Paintings of people with red hair and blue eyes were found at the tomb of Bagt in Beni Hassan. Many other tombs at Beni Hassan have paintings of individuals with blond and red hair as well as blue eyes.

Paintings of blonds and redheads have been found among the tombs at
Thebes.

Blond hair and blue eyes were painted at the tomb of
Pharaoh Menphtah in the valley of the Kings.

Paintings from the
Third Dynasty show native Egyptians with red hair and blue eyes.
They are shepherds, workers and bricklayers.

A blond woman was painted at the tomb of Djeser-ka-ra-seneb in Thebes.

A model of a ship from about 2500 B.C. is manned by five blond sailors.

The god Nuit was painted as white and blond.

A painting at the tomb of Meresankh III at Giza, from about 2485 B.C., shows white skin and red hair.

Two statues from about 2570 B.C., found in the tombs at Medum, show Prince Rahotep and his wife Nofret. He has light green stones for eyes. She has
violet-blue stones.

A painting from Iteti's tomb at Saqqara shows a very Nordic-looking man with blond hair.

Grafton Smith mentions the distinctly red hair of the 18th Dynasty mummy Henutmehet.

Harvard Professor Carleton Coon, in his book THE RACES OF EUROPE, tells us that "many of the officials, courtiers, and priests, representing the upper class of Egyptian society but not the royalty, looked strikingly like modern Europeans, especially long-headed ones." (Note: Nordics are long-headed.) Long-headed Europeans are most common in Britain, Scandinavia, the Netherlands, and northern Germany.

Time-Life books put out a volume called RAMESES II THE GREAT. It has a
good picture of the blond mummy of Rameses II. Another picture can be
found in the book X-RAYING THE PHARAOHS, especially the picture on the
jacket cover. It shows his yellow hair.


A book called CHRONICLE OF THE PHARAOHS was recently published showing paintings, sculptures and mummies of 189 pharaohs and leading personalities of Ancient Egypt. Of these, 102 appear European, 13 look Black, and the rest are hard to classify. All nine mummies look like our Europeans.


The very first pharaoh, Narmer, also known as Menes, looks very Caucasion

The same can be said for Khufu's cousin Hemon, who designed the Great Pyramid of Giza, with help from Imhotep. A computer-generated reconstruction of the face of the Sphinx shows a European-looking face.
It was once painted sunburned red. The Egyptians often painted
upper class men as red and upper class women as white; this is because
the men became sun-burned or tanned while outside under the burning Egyptian sun. The women, however, usually stayed inside.

In 1902, E. A. Wallis Budge, the renowned Egyptologist, described the pre-dynastic Egyptians thus:

"The predynastic Egyptians, that is to say, that stratum of them which was indigenous to North Africa, belonged to a white or light-skinned race with fair hair, who in many particulars resembled the Libyans, who in later historical times lived very near the western bank of the Nile." [E. A. W. Budge, Egypt in the Neolithic and Archaic Periods (London: Kegan Paul, Trench & Trübner, 1902), p. 49.]

Later, in the same book, Budge referred to a pre-dynastic statuette that: "has eyes inlaid with lapis-lazuli, by which we are probably intended to understand that the woman here represented had blue eyes." [Ibid., p. 51.]

In 1925, the Oxford don L. H. Dudley Buxton, wrote the following concerning ancient Egyptian crania:

"Among the ancient crania from the Thebaid in the collection in the Department of Human Anatomy in Oxford, there are specimens which must unhesitatingly be considered to be those of Nordic type. [L. H. D. Buxton, The Peoples of Asia (London: Kegan Paul, Trench & Trübner, 1925), p. 50.]

The Scottish physical anthropologist Robert Gayre has written, that in his considered opinion:

"Ancient Egypt, for instance, was essentially a penetration of Caucasoid racial elements into Africa . . . This civilisation grew out of the settlement of Mediterraneans, Armenoids, even Nordics, and Atlantics in North Africa . . ." [R. Gayre of Gayre, Miscellaneous Racial Studies, 1943-1972 (Edinburgh: Armorial, 1972), p. 85.]

When English archaeologist Howard Carter excavated the tomb of Tutankhamen in 1922, he discovered in the Treasury a small wooden sarcophagus. Within it lay a memento of Tutankhamen's beloved grandmother, Queen Tiye: "a curl of her auburn hair." [C. Desroches-Noblecourt, Tutankhamen: Life and Death of a Pharaoh (Harmondsworth: Penguin Books, 1972), p. 65.] (See mummy picture)

Queen Tiye (18th Dynasty), was the daughter of Thuya, a Priestess of the God Amun. Thuya's mummy, which was found in 1905, has long, red-blonde hair. Examinations of Tiye's mummy proved that she bore a striking resemblance to her mother. [B. Adams, Egyptian Mummies (Aylesbury: Shire Publications, 1988), p. 39.] (See mummy picture)

A painting of the mother of Pharaoh Amenhotep IV (18th Dynasty), reveals that she had blonde hair, blue eyes and a rosy complexion. [W. Sieglin, Die blonden Haare der indogermanischen Völker des Altertums (Munich: J. F. Lehmanns Verlag, 1935), p. 132.]

Princess Ranofri, a daughter of Pharaoh Tuthmosis III (18th Dynasty), is depicted as a blonde in a wall painting that was recorded in the 19th century, by the Italian Egyptologist Ippolito Rosellini. [Ibid., p. 132.]

In 1929 archaeologists discovered the mummy of fifty year-old Queen Meryet-Amun (another daughter of Tuthmosis III); the mummy has wavy, light-brown hair. [R. B. Partridge, Faces of Pharaohs (London: Rubicon Press, 1994), p. 91.]

American Egyptologist Donald P. Ryan excavated tomb KV 60, in the Valley of the Kings, during the course of 1989. Inside, he found the mummy of a royal female, which he believes to be the long-lost remains of the great Queen Hatshepsut (18th Dynasty). Ryan describes the mummy as follows:

"The mummy was mostly unwrapped and on its back. Strands of reddish-blond hair lay on the floor beneath the bald head." [Ibid., p. 87.]

Manetho, a Graeco-Egyptian priest who flourished in the 3rd century BC, wrote in his Egyptian History, that the last ruler of the 6th Dynasty was a woman by the name of Queen Nitocris. He has this to say about her:

"There was a queen Nitocris, braver than all the men of her time, the most beautiful of all the women, blonde-haired with rosy cheeks. By her, it is said, the third pyramid was reared, with the aspect of a mountain." [W. G. Waddell, Manetho (London: William Heinemann, 1980), p. 57.]

According to the Graeco-Roman authors Pliny the Elder, Strabo and Diodorus Siculus, the Third Pyramid was built by a woman named Rhodopis. When translated from the original Greek, her name means "rosy-cheeked". [G. A. Wainwright, The Sky-Religion in Egypt (Cambridge: University Press, 1938), p. 42.]

We may also note that a tomb painting recorded by the German Egyptologist C. R. Lepsius in the 1840s, depicts a blonde woman by the name of Hetepheres (circa 5th Dynasty). The German scholar Alexander Scharff, observed that she was described as being a Priestess of the Goddess Neith, a deity who was sacred to the blond-haired Libyans of the Delta region. He goes on to state that her name is precisely the same as that of Queen Hetepheres II, who is also shown as fair-haired, in a painting on the wall of Queen Meresankh III's tomb. He deduced from all of this, that the two women may well have been related, and he suggested that Egypt during the Age of the Pyramids, was dominated by an elite of blonde women. [A. Scharff, "Ein Beitrag zur Chronologie der 4. ägyptischen Dynastie." Orientalistische Literaturzeitung XXXI (1928) pp. 73-81.]

The twentieth prayer of the 141st chapter of the ancient Egyptian Book of the Dead, is dedicated "to the Goddess greatly beloved, with red hair." [E. A. W. Budge, The Book of the Dead (London: Kegan Paul, Trench & Trübner, 1901), p. 430.] In the tomb of Pharaoh Merenptah (19th Dynasty), there are depictions of red-haired goddesses. [N. Reeves & R. H. Wilkinson, The Complete Valley of the Kings (London: Thames & Hudson, 1997), p. 149.]

In the Book of the Dead, the eyes of the god Horus are described as "shining," or "brilliant," whilst another passage refers more explicitly to "Horus of the blue eyes". [Budge, op. cit., pp. 421 & 602.] The rubric to the 140th chapter of said book, states that the amulet known as the "Eye of Horus," (used to ward-off the "Evil Eye"), must always be made from lapis-lazuli, a mineral which is blue in colour. [Ibid., p. 427.] It should be noted that the Goddess Wadjet, who symbolised the Divine Eye of Horus, was represented by a snake (a hooded cobra to be precise), and her name, when translated from the original Egyptian, means "blue-green". [A. F. Alford, The Phoenix Solution (London: Hodder & Stoughton, 1998), pp. 266-268.] Interestingly, the ancient Scandanavians claimed that anyone who was blue-eyed (and therefore possessed the power of the Evil Eye), had "a snake in the eye," and blue eyes were frequently compared to the eyes of a serpent. [F. B. Gummere, Germanic Origins (London: David Nutt, 1892), pp. 58, 62.]

In the ancient Pyramid Texts, the Gods are said to have blue and green eyes. [Alford, op. cit., p. 232.] The Graeco-Roman author Diodorus Siculus (I, 12), says that the Egyptians thought the goddess Neith had blue eyes. [C. H. Oldfather, Diodorus of Sicily (London: William Heinemann, 1968), p. 45.]

A text from the mammisi of Isis at Denderah, declares that the goddess was given birth to in the form of a "ruddy woman". [J. G. Griffiths, De Iside et Osiride (Cardiff: University of Wales Press, 1970), p. 451.] Finally, the Greek author Plutarch, in the 22nd chapter of his De Iside et Osiride, states that the Egyptians thought Horus to be fair-skinned, and the god Seth to be of a ruddy complexion. [Ibid., p. 151.]

Ruddy means RED with or without freckles.

The ancient Egyptians were white. Through slavery, intermixing, expansion of borders (and eventually being conquered), trading, and many people becoming members of the Egyptian society they became brown over time. When the Nubians conquered Egypt, the Pharoh was obviously black. Ramses II had red hair and was probably the last significant white Pharoh of Egypt.

Most of the slaves that were used in Egypt were of caucasian descent most came from macedonia turkey Persia and Kurdish areas as well as hebrew.. There were also quite a few that were Oriental. Just because someone is brown dosent meen he is not white. half of the White i.e Caucasian race is brown and even darker to almost Black. Dont go by just color of skin you half to go by face and body structure as well. The term White is a quick fylum name it stands for Caucasian so to speak. The term Yellow stands for Oriental i.e mongoloid peoples. The term Black i.e for Negroid peoples. The red race is actualy caucasian they are a Hebrew arabic berber people i.e Semitic and semities are White i.e .. Caucasian. So yes your Egyptians are and were white. The nigger lovin Afro centric Idiots of today have got this Bull shit started about egyptians being black and they werent. And most of your slaves in egypt were white very few were black. though there were some but most were caucasian and oriental..Thank Dr. Shab el saba

Lies, lies and more lies. Egypt is Africa, but let you liars tell it, it is in North Africa, so not really Africa. Just like a European always wanting the GLORY. You can't deny the truth, nor reality. We real AFRICANS know our history, and it has nothing to do with "White" people. Get it together and try again. Proud to be black and a real ROYALTY.

'Miss Stake' (Anon.) above thinks she's royalty. HA. They are the seed of slaves, and the spawn of mating between beasts, with their lowered IQ's and ugly physiognomies.

Oh, and BTW, change the word 'there' in the title to 'their' and check your grammar. If all of this is true, it does no good to appear to be an idiot, devoid of the common sense to use a grammar check and spell check when writing articles for public dissemination.

THE ANCIENT EGYPTIANS WERE WHAT COLOR?

THE GENEOLOGY OF THE EGYPTIANS SET FORTH BY THE ONE THAT CREATED THEM (THE GOD OF ISRAEL) IN THE BOOK OF (GENESIS 10:6)!

“ACCORDING TO THE BIBLE“, NOAH’S SON HAM HAD 4 SONS THAT FATHERED THE FOLLOWING NATIONS AFTER THE FLOOD, (Genesis 10:6): CUSH (Ethiopians), MIZRAIM (Egyptians), PUTH (Libyans), and CANAAN (Canaanites)! See also (Psalms 78:51), which tells us that the Egyptians were the children of HAM!

Genesis 10:6 is telling us that the (Black Ethiopians), Egyptians, Libyans and Canaanites were “BROTHERS” and ALL had the same Father,” HAM”!

The Ethiopians have ALWAYS been and will always be a BLACK race their history can be traced back over 3500 years, (THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A GENETIC WHITE ETHIOPIAN, ALL ETHIOPIANS ARE BLACK)! Which means Ham had to have been BLACK in order to father BLACK Ethiopian children,” WHITE MEN CANNOT FATHER BLACK CHILDREN” and Hams other children EGYPT had to have been BLACK, because they are the (BROTHERS), of the Black Ethiopians and had the same (BLACK), Father HAM, (THIS IS WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS LIKE IT OR NOT!) (GENESIS 10:6)! Which means THE GENEOLOGY GIVEN TO US BY THE GOD OF ISRAEL TELLS US THAT THE EGYPTIANS ARE DESCENDED FROM A BLACK MAN “HAM”, AND THEIR BROTHERS WERE “BLACK ETHIOPIANS” WHICH MEANS THEY WERE BLACK AND MAKES IT IMPOSSIBLE FOR THEM TO SUDDENLY TURN WHITE AND NO ONE IN THEIR RIGHT MIND WOULD ATTEMPT TO GET WHITE EGYPTIANS FROM WHAT “GOD” TOLD US ABOUT HAM AND HIS SONS IN (GENESIS 10:6).
IF ANYONE HAS A PROBLEM WITH THE GOD OF ISRAEL"CONTRADICTING" HIS OR HER "WHITE EGYPTIANS", BELIEF IN (GENESIS 10: 6), TAKE IT UP WITH HIM!

Revelation 12:9: And the dragon was cast out, and that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which DECEVITH THE WHOLE WORLD!!

“WHITE EGYPTIANS”, GOD SAYS THERE IS NO SUCH THING (Genesis 10:6) AND ANYONE THAT BELIEVES OTHERWISE SATAN HAS DECEIVED YOU!

It's amazing to me how everyone on here has no knowledge of who we are and how we got here. HAM, SHEM, and JAPHETH/sons of NOAH Birth the world as we know it now as the 1st habitants of this world were destroy in the flood. Read your bible and you will see this.

The So-Called 'White' is of the gentiles and as stated in the Bible know not GOD or of his covenants and teachings. It is easy to see that the people that are spoken of in the bible in Jeremiah are of 'Black' hue.

Where in the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade are 'Whites' ever mentioned as to have been traded and dispersed into all ends of the earth? We, even today, with so many 'Laws' and 'Civil Rights Acts' still have no land that we can call our own.

And for the record, I look at all these comments and the only one Anonymous Individual to present any type of credible info that we all probably have read and/or could read, is the only individual who condemned and cursed and spoken harshly to on here. Now in the Grand Scheme of Things, you all claim to be of some religious sect or group and to be on the "Right Side" of the Holy Book but yet you have not learned how to control your tongue.

And for the record, People of Minority Numbers and Status CANNOT be deemed as Racist for they lack the economical and political power to do such.

This article is the biggest bull shit I have ever seen. The egyptians were BROWN, their complextion were not NORDIC, they were more evolutionate than the SAXONS OR THE NORDICS at that time. So, if the complextions of NEFERTITI are NORDIC you are actually on heroin. The EGYPTIANS were mediterraneans, brown people. So, who ever wrote this article is a fucking moron. By the way, the nordics didn't have at that time the capacity to build any of the great things that egypt did.
