Does anyone know if there are any examples of pharoahs who have been deified (I know they were all supposed to be divine) to the point where there were myths made up about them?


This happened to a number of very prominent kings, and usually a long time after they had been dead. A good example is Khufu, builder of the Great Pyramid in Dynasty 4. Probably as early as Dynasty 12 a number of stories grew around him, and some are preserved in the Westcar Papyrus.
