hamelin-born:

signorformica:

Pharaoh Ramses II’s Egyptian passport, issued in 1976 for passage to France nearly three millennia after his death.

In order to leave the country, Egypt required anyone leaving the country, living or dead, to have the proper papers. Seemingly the first mummy to receive one, Ramses had his occupation listed as “King (deceased).”  Bibliothèque Infernale on FB
