Armenia And Ancient Egypt

It appears that Armenians might be the only survived nation tradition, mythology and language of which kept the significance and meanings of forgotten Sumer, Mesopotamia and Egypt cultures.

Hardly preserved, scarred fragments of the ancient Armenian culture can serve as a bridge to understanding the historical experience and values of the said cultures.

In the culture of Ancient Egypt we can find quite a few fragments and traces of the once influential Armenian presence. As Robac wrote: “Around 3600 BC people of a different physical type appeared in Egypt: more squat, broad-leaved and more heavy-weight in appearance.

They were possibly Armenoids who came in small groups from Syria and Palestine. Most likely, they were ones who brought metalworking skills with them, because after 3600 static agricultural communities began to develop.”

It was with their help the reign of the first pharaohs began, the very first of which was Mina (Man, Menes, Minas). The Egyptian Copts still use “Ara”, which means father, lord, as a way of respectful addressing.

“Heiress of the throne, beneficent, the embodiment of beauty, the sweetness of love, Lady of North and South, beloved of Aten in flesh, the first wife of the pharaoh, beloved master of both lands, great in love and forever living Nefertiti…”

Neferneferuaten Nefertiti was born in 1370 BC, but Egyptologists still are unable to come to a final conclusion on where and in what family she was born.

Many believed that the very name of the queen conceals the secret of her origin. From Egyptian Nefertiti is translated as “arrival of the beauty”, which might mean she came to Egypt from another region. Parents raised her in the traditions of the monotheistic Aryan religion which worships the sun as the only deity.

Nefertiti was probably sent by her father to Egypt as a gift to Pharaoh Amenhotep IV in the “House of Ornaments” (harem) and became one of hundreds of foreign princesses brought to give birth sons of the lord.
