  Statue of Ramses II
by Jeca011

Originally two statues of Ramses II had flanked the entrance to the hypostyle hall. One, almost 16 m tall, still exists. His Queen is at his feet.

Rameses II (19th dynasty), son of Seti I, was around thirty years old when he became king of Egypt - and then reigned for 67 years. He had many wives, among them some of his own near relatives, and was the father of about 111 sons and 51 daughters.
