The Pyramid of Menkaure


The Pyramid of Menkaure and the three Queen's Pyramids.

The third Pyramid at Giza, built by the Pharaoh Menkaure, is 65 meters high and is therefore much smaller than the other two. Pharaoh is the the title of the ancient Egyptian Kings.

On the southern side of the Pyramid there are three Queen's Pyramids for the Royal Wives.
