Ramses the Great, or not so great

Got the semester started with a fun piece: Ramses the Great is the most well known Pharaoh of Egypt’s history. Why? Well I think mostly because as pharaoh his image is everywhere on statues to paintings and so on. Was he great? I’m not really sure but I imagine he wasn’t quite as great as legend, or this illustration, might suggest.

Let me know what you think in the comments and all have a great day.

UPDATE: Sorry all for the original image that was cut off and ugly, I've been trying out new blogging software and apparently gotta work on my settings. Here is the re posted illustration in its full form glory.
