Aha, the sovereign of the ancient Egypt. It was an Egyptian pharaoh, belonging to the dynasty. News of this ruler is extremely scarce and fragmented.
The name appears in the Palermo Stone as a unifier of Egypt.
This fact, combined with the discovery of an ivory plaque which, along with the name Aha, shows the hieroglyph mn (readable as Meni), has led some scholars, including Jürgen von Beckerath, to speculate that Narmer – Meni – Aha are names of the same sovereign.
An ebony plaque found at Abydos commemorates a campaign against the Nubians.
You may need him the extension of the southern border to the nomos of Elephantine.
In other inscriptions, the name is accompanied by receiving the Upper and Lower Egypt, and so it is conceivable that Aha has worked to consolidate the work of Narmer, his predecessor. The Ebers Papyrus, compiled Hyksos era, reports the tradition that would Aha as a doctor, also cited tradition from Sextus Julius Africanus. CAha chief queen may have been Benerib (He whose heart is sweet) and Khentap secondary queen. Assuming that Aha and Narmer are the same people, with the name “Meni” as the title, the role of chief queen should be for neithhotep, probably not the mother of Djer, Aha’s successor, who would act as regent. The Aha’s tomb was identified in the Necropolis of Umm el-Qa’ab at Abydos.
As every true sovereign does not just conduct wars of conquest and consolidation of his kingdom. As before him Scorpion King and the same King Narmer also devoted himself to the economic development and the United Social. To do this, he conducted studies and Research Department in various fields. His preference, however, went to Medicine and Architecture.
We know that he built, among others, a Temple that I dedicate to Neith, one of the oldest Dee d-Egypt, which revealed one in the United unification effort policy and strategic move.
