The most impressive of the Great pyramids is that which was built
for Khunm Khufu (Cheops) a Pharaoh who ruled during the forth dynasty of the
old Kingdom (2589–2566 BC).
The second most impressive is that of his son Khafre (Chephren) who was Pharaoh
during twenty-four years (2558 – 2532). His face is said to be that
of the great Sphinx, although this is debatable due to some controversy dating
the sphinx as far back as 5000BC.
The third and final predominant pyramid is that of Menkaura, the son of Khafre.
Menkaura ruled for thirty-five years (2532 – 2503BC). Smaller pyramids
next to Kheops’s giant were for his Queens such as Meritities.
