Ancient Egypt Wiki

The title of General, (ancient Egyptian: imy-rꜣ-mšꜥ) literally Overseer of the Army, was a high military rank in ancient Egypt. The title could be held by multiple individuals who were in charge of a significant army force. Generals took part in war council and were subject to the Generalissimo (or Great Overseer of the Army) and of course to the Pharaoh. They had authority over troop commanders, through which they usually commanded their army. Generals were particularly skilled with bow and arrow and rode in chariots.
