Christian Jacq is a published French author of fiction. He is also a noted Egyptologist. He resides in Switzerland. His books have sold millions of copies (over 27 million) around the world and their popularity has resulted in the books being translated into thirty languages and counting.

Jacq was born on April 28, 1947 in Paris, France. He first went to Egypt to visit when he was just seventeen years old. Already interested in Egypt and its history, the visit sparked an even deeper interest in Egypt and he decided to pursue his interest. He would go to the Sorbonne to study archaeology and Egyptology. As a result, he is one of the best known and leading Egyptologists in the world.

He has channeled his interest into writing several books that revolve around the time period of ancient Egypt. One of the best known is his fictional series focusing on Pharaoh Ramses II. Jacq had a great admiration for this character and decided to channel it into his books. He would also go on to pen The Mysteries of Osiris series. He has also written several other series, including The Place of Truth and The Queen of Freedom, as well as Stone of Light, Judge of Egypt, and more.

Jacq first became interested in Egypt at the young age of thirteen years old. This is when he picked up a book written by author Jacques Pirenne titled History of Ancient Egyptian Civilization. The novel so inspired him that he sat down and wrote his first book. He kept on writing and had composed eight books by reaching the age of eighteen.

The first book that he wrote that was successful on a commercial basis was published in 1987 and is titled Champollion the Egyptian. He has since written several dozen books that include fictional works as well as non fiction works based on Egyptology. He received a doctorate for his work in Egyptian Studies when he attended the Sorbonne.

His passion for the subject would not fade. He would get married and along with his wife would found the Ramses Institute. The institute’s purpose is to describe Egypt in a photographic way so as to preserve archaeological sites that would be otherwise endangered.

Christian Jacq is the creator and the author of the Ramses series. The series contains five books in it and started off with the publication of The Son of Light, the debut novel, in 1997. The series became a best seller and the popularity of the series has seen it published in 25 countries and more. The sequel would come out in 1998 and is titled The Temple of a Million Years, also going by the title The Eternal Temple. This was followed by The Battle of Kadesh, The Lady of Abu Simbel, and Under the Western Acacia.

Each book in this series focuses on a different part of the historical life that Ramses live. Together they are combining the truth and fiction, putting into detail an older world that deals with themes of betrayal, life, and love. The books go into not only the life of the pharaoh but his family and political life as well. He features his sister and brother, both hungry for power. Shanaar is his older brother and Dolora is the older sister, both corrupt in their own ways.

It also delves into his mistress Isetnofret and his first great wife and deep love Nefertari. Once they die, he is older and marries Maetnefrure. The author also features his biological children. These include Kha’emweset, Meritamen, and Merneptah. He does have other children in a sense, but they’re younger officials that are being trained to serve the government and go by the honorary title sons of the pharaoh.
