The 1st Dynasty 3050-2890 BCE Pharaohs of the 1st dynasty include: Hor-Aha, Djer, Djet, Den, Anedjib and Semerkhet. This dynasty marks the first time that Upper and Lower Egypt were unified under one ruler. Hor-Aha (sometimes just called Aha) may have been the son of King Menes (aka Narmer), the king credited with united Upper and Lower Egypt, while others believe that Hor-Aha was Menes. During his reign, Hor-Aha declared Memphis to be the capital of Egypt, an idea which stuck for thousands of years. Other Dynasties
