It was ruled by Ra From 8,000 BC to 3,000 BC. During his reign, he took some Ancient Egyptians from Earth and transported them to Abydos. He used the humans as slaves and made them build the Great Pyramids of Giza as it is known today, to use as landing sites for Ha'tak vessels. Around the year 3,000 BC, a rebellion took place, forcing Ra to flee from Egypt and Earth. (Stargate) (SG1: "Moebius, Part 1")
