Ramses 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.
The family of Ramses worshipped Seth, the red-haired god of chaos, because of their belief to a divine lineage to him, proof in the face that many of them had red hair. Seti I the father of Ramses II had red hair.
A mummy of red-haired man has been uncovered in Egypt that is over 5000 years old named appropriately, Ginger.
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.
