Egypt has over 7000 years of historical influence. It has been known as a destination for travelers since Herodotus visited and wrote about it. The discovery of the Pharaohs' monuments, with unique religious and cultural antiquities has made it a must see destination. The legends of Ramses, Nefertiti and Tutankhamun and places like the Great Pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx echoes in art, literature and popular culture.
When Alexander the Great conquered Egypt, Ancient Egyptian priests proclaimed him pharaoh after the oracle of Siwa declared Alexander to be a descendant of Amun, the chief deity of Ancient Egypt. Ptolemy I, one of Alexander's generals, succeeded Alexander as pharaoh and established the Ptolemaic dynasty.
Cleopatra, a direct descendant of Ptolemy I, was the last Greek ruler of Egypt. Augustus put an end to centuries of Ptolemaic rule when he defeated Marc Anthony and Cleopatra. After winning the war, Augustus made Egypt a province of Rome. After the collapse of the Roman Empire, Greco Roman Egypt became a part of the Byzantine Empire until the Arab Muslim conquest.
