Organizers transported the 18 kings and four queens from the Egyptian Museum and through the capital in chronological order according to their reign.

One of the biggest draws of Saturday’s event was King Ramses II, who ruled for 67 years and is thought to have signed the first known peace treaty.

Each mummy was carried on specialized vehicles outfitted with shock absorbers and accompanied by a motorcade.
