The Legend of NARÉ MARI – The First Pharoah Of Egypt


Naré Mari is a true African legend and is considered the first Pharaoh of the first dynasty. 5,300 years ago, he founded the unified Egypt that ruled the world for 3,000 years.

Modern humans emerged about 300,000 years ago in the regions called Ta Ntjer in ancient Egypt, meaning God’s own land. And proofs of the origin of Egyptian civilization which include; astronomy, mathematics, religion and probably, architecture were found in the Great lake regions and Southern Africa.

Having this legacy handed down to them, the Anu people, who are known as the first human beings, migrated from the Great lakes, through the Nile to Sudan, where they invented Agriculture. In Sudan, they built the first stone city, which is about 15,000 years old, and originated the Pharaonic civilization.

From Sudan, the Anu people went further down the Nile to Egypt where they built more cities, the Great Sphinx about 10,000 years old and the renowned pyramids which are almost 5,800 years old.

The Delta of Northern Egypt was formed about 5,500 years ago when minerals from the holy regions of the Great Lakes were washed down by the river. The settling of the Kamtiu (Egyptians) on the Delta was brief because White Asians invaded the Delta, and the Kamtiu had to go back. This led to several wars and struggle for the Delta between the Northern foreigners and the Southern Kings.

In other to take the Delta once and for all, and unify the Southern and Northern regions, 5,300 years ago, the kings of NehkhabAbjuNubetYeb and Nekhen, came together in Nagaba and chose Naré Mari, King of Nekhen and the most relevant Southern King to conquer the Delta.

Meni Horo Naré Mari Tjau was born to Queen Sesh and King Serkhet Horo Ka, not long after the invention of writing 5,400 years ago. So he was established in the civilizational and historical awareness of his roots, and this could be seen in his artistic illustrations of his escapades. The unification of Egypt is illustrated on Naré Mari’s tablet which is still preserved in the Cairo Museum to date.

Naré Mari’s began by eliminating blacks who were resistant to pharaonic authority and conquered the land, after which he wears the Hedjet (the white crown of Southern Egypt). He further conquered Lower Egypt by eliminating the white Asians. This can be seen as he now wears the Desheret (the red crown of Northern Egypt) and holds the Nekhasha (the fly whisk) in his right hand; this allows him to cast out evil spirits. All these are illustrated on his tablet.

The King through war conquered the entire country and in 1000 of African era became the first Pharaoh of unified Egypt. He was bestowed with the titles; Henu Shemau Mehu (Northern and Southern Sovereign), Nsut Bity (The Southern King who conquered the North), and Neb Tawy (Master of both lands). He was the first to wear both crowns.

Naré Mari’s 62-year reign was marked with Egypt’s militarization, he created the Men Nafooré, (Memphis), between Upper Egypt and Lower Egypt and fortified it to prevent further assault. The city was named after his name (Menes). Memphis became the capital city of Northern or Lower Egypt, while Nekhen remained the capital of Southern Egypt.

Like his predecessors who partially controlled the near east, he reinforced his authority in Gaza, which was then inhabited by fellow Blacks, the Kin-anu people (The Canaanites).

NaréMari handed down a powerful, unified Egypt to his successors who grew Egypt into the world power that ruled the world for 3,000 years, civilizing Asia, America, and Europe.

In west Africa, the names Naré and Mari are still used till date, in Mali and Burkina faso. A famous example is Sundjata Keita, the founder of the Mali Empire in the 13th century; his father was Naré Maghan Konate, while he was called Mari Djata Keita. The name Mari means loved in the Pharaonic language and is the origin of the Christian name Mary.
