The King of Kings was a visual representation of one of Bayek's genetic memories, relived by Layla Hassan through the Portable Animus HR-8.


The Pharaoh Ramesses stalks the land. The historian Tahemet has an ancient papyrus that holds the key to granting Egypt's greatest King his final rest.


Bayek visited Tahemet in her tent. Tahemet took a scroll off her shelf.

  • Tahemet: Look at this, tell me what do you see?
  • Bayek: I see you. Exactly where I left you pouring over dusty papyrus and losing more than you win on dice.
  • Tahemet: Knowledge is not necessarily wisdom, Bayek. You have heard of Ramesses the II, yes? The Great Pharaoh, father to a hundred children? He is the Pharaoh who walks.
  • Bayek: How do you know?

Tahemet placed the scroll on a table.

  • Tahemet: This speaks of it, strange because it must be a thousand years old.

Tahemet deciphering the scroll

Tahemet unrolled the scroll and read it.

  • Tahemet: A great king, his soul fragmented. Doesn't say why he is here. For revenge? Or, he has unfinished business?
  • Bayek: As do we all.

Bayek left, not before being stopped by Tahemet.

  • Tahemet: Wait, Bayek. Let me see, before you get yourself killed!

Bayek returned to her table.

  • Tahemet: The pharaoh's name, the pharaoh's shadow, an ancient ritual it's all here... fascinating.
  • Bayek: If he is like the others, I know what needs to be done. But I will need the parchment.
  • Tahemet: Of course... So about my finders fee?

Tahemet rolled up the scroll.

  • Bayek: Or you could give it to me from the goddness of your heart? Unless you already lost that on another bad roll of the dice?

Tahement frowned at Bayek's joke handed the scroll to him.

  • Tahemet: Take it with my blessing. Ra protect you, Bayek.

Byek making his leave

Bayek left the tent. He read the scroll.

  • Papyrus of User-maat-Re:
    In the time of philopatris, the one who lovers her country, an eagle will reunite the fractured soul of Ramesses. Face the Great One who walks, he who straddles the kingdoms, holds the vulture and the cobra in his mighty grasp. In the ruins a Pharaoh's Ren, great songs and hymns sung in his name. A mother's blood, the heart, the Pharaoh's Jb. Return them and banish the God with the ritual of Heb Sed.
  • Bayek: The Pharaoh's Jb, his Sheut, his Ren? This is how I will quieten the great Ramesses.

Bayek travelled Upper Egypt to recover the jb and ren for the ritual, as well as to defeat the sheut of Ramesses II walking in the mortal realm. In addition, Bayek travelled to the House of millions of years of Usermaatra-setepenra to find some clue how to enter Ramesses' tomb.

  • Bayek: Ramesses' temple. Built so his memory would not wither. Does it keep the secret of his tomb?

He approached and found the temple had been occupied by bandits.

  • Bayek: Bandits have made camp here. If something remained they probably took it.

Bayek defeated the bandits and recovered a map to Ramesses' tomb.

  • Bayek: An unmarked tomb with the same cartouche from the hymns and songs.

With the preparations complete, Bayek travelled to the Valley of the Kings, where Ramesses's tomb was located. He reached the entrance to the tomb.

  • Bayek: What will I find in the Pharaoh's tomb? More desecration?

Bayek in Ramesses' tomb

Bayek navigated through the tomb, eventually reaching the main burial chamber. He investigated Ramesses' crypt and found it to be empty.

  • Bayek: What path should I follow now?

A Ba flew to him and perched upon the tomb.

  • Nefertari: Bayek of Siwa, you have come. Will you help my husband Ramesses find the peace he deserves?

The Ba flew off into a portal. Bayek followed and entered the portal. Crossing the passageway, he encountered warriors of Anubis.

  • Anubis Warrior 1: The living are not welcome.
  • Anubis Warrior 2: Leave! Leave this place.
ACO CotP The King of Kings - Bayek Speaking to Nefertari's Ba

Bayek finding the Ba of Nefertari

Bayek defeated the warriors of Anubis. He then continued his way and reached Heb Sed. He found the Ba at the Gate of Heb Sed and approached it.

  • Bayek: Ramesses the great is your husband?
  • Nefertari: In life I was his most beloved consort. The favourite queen of a great man.
  • Bayek: Why does he walk the black land?
  • Nefertari: He lived a glorious life, vanquished our enemies, gave us prosperity, but in death his ka finds no peace. Once the medjay were servants of the Pharaohs...
  • Bayek: I am medjay no longer.
  • Nefertari: But you know what it is to sacrifice for something greater than yourself. Ramesses served Egypt like no other. Has he not earned an ageless slumber?
  • Bayek: What will you have me do?
  • Nefertari: I will whisper the ritual in your ear.

Nefetari whispered to him the ritual.

  • Nefertari: You are the cup bearer of the Keeper of Harmony. Set free the spoils of war and return his Hemset. The Ka of Ozymandias. Be furious in wrath, take it from those who hide it. It must stride on the sands. Side by side they must ascend into the deathless feathers. And summon the ba, the traverser of worlds.

Bayek traveled the Heb Sed afterlife to free the Bas of soldiers captured during battle and retrieve Ramesses' eyes. With these preparations complete, Bayek was ready to lay the pharaoh to rest.

  • Nefertari: The bones of the earth-god quake. The two doors of the horizon are open; its bolt slide, revealing him upon his firm throne.
ACO CotP The King of Kings - Throne

Bayek summoning Ramesses II

Bayek travelled to the Battlefield of Kadesh.

  • Nefertari: The face of the god is open, revealed.

Bayek approached the throne and placed a scroll before it.

  • Bayek: Bringer of peace. Champion of Kadesh. Face me, I bring you rest.

The apparition of Ramesses manifested on the throne. He took up his weapon and attacked Bayek. After a great battle, Bayek emerged victorious. As Ramesses faded away, a disintegrating Nefertari approached them.

  • Nefertari: Ra grant you eternity with your beloved, Bayek.
ACO CotP The King of Kings - Vision of Ramesses' Celebration

Vision of Ramesses II celebrating

Bayek nodded. He witnessed a vision of Ramesses displaying his strength in battle, followed by him making peace with another soldier. Ramesses and the soldier bowed to each other.

  • Bayek: Such greatness.

He then received a vision of Ramesses with his family and followers, and a few priests of Amun.

  • Bayek: But did he achieve this alone?


Bayek defeated the spirit of Ramesses II, allowing him to be at peace.
