Narmer

 

a king of ancient Egypt; one of those who united Upper and Lower Egypt around the third millennium B.C. Contemporary Egyptologists consider Narmer to be the predecessor of King Menes (Mena), founder of the First Dynasty. On a palette found at Hierakonpolis and now in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo, Narmer is depicted as the conqueror of Lower Egypt and the ruler of the United Kingdom of Lower and Upper Egypt.
