Panedjem I (Pinedjem)
Among the very early Priest -kings who seized the opportunity of being the kingship in gradual declining and ruled Egypt in 1070 BC.
One of the major indicators of the kingship weakness was having the pharaoh subjected (in the funeral literature)to the judgement of Osiris where his heart was shown in the process of weighing against the feather of Maat or justice.
Such notion had been resisted by the divinity of the pharoaoh and never been tolerated by ancient Egyptians in the earlier times!
