Paraoh (Egyptian “great house”), name originally used by the ancient Egyptians for the palace of their king. Beginning in the 18th Dynasty (1570-1293 BC) it was applied to the king himself. It is familiar to modern readers mainly because it is used to designate Egyptian kings in the Bible, usually with no other identification.
