In this regard, Egyptians regarded them respect and adoration. Therefore, they did everything possible to appease them. On the same note, Egyptians elevated a few human beings to gods. In another dimension, Egyptian leaders, pharaohs, were symbol of gods and so regarded as some. Just like gods would be accorded all adoration and respect, pharaohs were also accorded the same respect and adoration. They were accorded absolute power to rule. As a sign of respect for pharaohs, after their death, Egyptians built huge pyramids as their tombs. Since pharaohs had the power to protect their people, they had the power to order and direct the army in situations where Egypt perceived to have foreign threat. The same case applied when there were some internal threats. In order to protect their people from hunger, pharaohs ordered every person to pay tax in form of grain, which were mostly kept at pharaohs stores. These grains would be used in feeding people whenever the country was hit by disasters such as famine. In order to have everything run smoothly, pharaohs had their assistants whom they appointed. These assistants were known as chief ministers. Mostly, they were entrusted in keeping government records because they had the ability to read and write. Down the line of command were powerful nobles and priests. Indirectly, nobles profited from the tribute of pharaohs.
