and here's a quote under the heading "Mummy":
For the last decades of his life, Ramesses II was essentially crippled with arthritis and walked with a hunched back, and a recent study excluded ankylosing spondylitis as a possible cause of the pharaoh's arthritis. A significant hole in the pharaoh's mandible was detected while "an abscess by his teeth was serious enough to have caused death by infection, although this cannot be determined with certainty." Microscopic inspection of the roots of Ramesses II's hair revealed that the king may have been a redhead.
Nope - not killed by God while crossing the "Parted" Red Sea.
Now what are you going to come up with me wonders
