We think of Pharaoh when we hear an unusual Egyptian name starting with Sa. Indeed, a pharaoh named Sa Nakht of Egypt’s third dynasty did exist in history, yet he wasn’t your average Pharaoh. In fact, Sa Nakht was revealed as ‘Ancient Egypt’s Mysterious Giant Pharaoh.’ Sa-Nakht’s remains may be the oldest known remains of a human giant, according to a new study. Research indicates that he has long been regarded as one of Egypt’s greatest pharaohs.

1 Sa Nakht reigned as Pharaoh from 2500 BC.

The reign of Sa-Nakhat, the gigantic Pharaoh, began around 2500 BC. According to legend, he reigned for almost 18 years before marrying Initkawes. During the year 2,650 B.C., he ruled as Jesesemuy’s successor.

After a series of tombs belonging to the Third Dynasty was uncovered near Beit Khallaf in 1901, archaeologists were surprised to find his tomb. Sa Nakht’s tomb, in particular, piqued people’s interest due to its enormous size compared to the others and all other tombs unearthed in antiquity.

Scientists examined his skeleton as part of their ongoing study of mummies. They identified the skeleton’s origin as Sa-Nakhat, a pharaoh of the Third Dynasty. The skeletal frame was remarkable for its length and its unusually tall stature for the period.

Interestingly, prior research on ancient Egyptian mummies revealed that the average height for men around this time was roughly 5’6” (1.7 meters). However, Sa Nakht’s skeleton was documented to be more than 1.90 meters or roughly 6’1”.
