Behind the scenesEdit
On January 25, 2011 the Egyptian civilization was announced as the second civilization. The Egyptians were released with the Greeks on August 16, 2011, Age of Empire Online's official release.[[|]]
The Egyptian civilization was based on the fertile lands of the Nile River. The Nile would annually flood, bringing rich yellow silt onto the banks of the river. Around 3150 BC, Upper and Lower Egypt were united under the first pharaoh, Narmer, who became the absolute monarch of a hierarchial society.
Ancient Egypt is commonly organized under a series of Kingdoms and Intermediate Periods. Egyptian Kingdoms were eras of stability: Old Kingdom, the Middle Kingdom, and the New Kingdom (Golden Age). The Intermediate Periods were eras of relative instability. The Egyptians flourished and became a dominant Meditteranean power, expanding into Nubia, Libya, and Levant.
After the end of the New Kingdom era, Egypt fell into decline and became conquered by a succession of foreign powers (ex: the Nubians, Libyans, Assyrians, Babylonians, Persians, and Greeks). After Alexander the Great's death, one of his generals, Ptolemy Soter, established himself as the ruler of Egypt and founded by Ptolemaic Dynasty. As the Greek Empire went into decline, Ptolemaic Egypt fell to the Roman Empire and became a Roman Province called Aegyptus.
