"Egyptians did not question the beliefs which had been handed down to them" (Pg. 81, David, 1988) Divine Kingship was one of those beliefs.  Divine Kingship is the belief that the Pharaoh was not only the King (political ruler) but also a god. Due to their beliefs, the Pharaoh held an immense amount of power.
He acted as the intermediary between his people and the gods, and was obligated to sustain the gods through rituals and offerings so that they could maintain order in the universe.
