Ancient Egyptians Pharaohs Had Red Hair

Egyptian queen red hairRamses II had red hair.

Claims have been made against Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses II having red hair, stating that his hair was dyed with henna. I would agree because most redheads are proud of their red hair and greatly desire it to remain so even when they age and it turns white. Well, recent scientific research suggests he really did have red hair.

I have told this information to many redheads and I always get the same mouth dropping and head shaking because redheads were up in the northern latitudes and Egyptians must look like middle easterns and have darker hair and skin.

The image to the left was found on the tomb of the granddaughter of King Khufu.

Note red hair.
