Ma’at was the goddess of the physical and moral law of Egypt, of order and truth. The Egyptians believed that if the pharaoh ever failed to live by and maintain ma’at that chaos would return to Egypt and the world and all would be destroyed. Thus, the pharoahs of Egypt saw it as their cosmic role to uphold the principles of Ma’at, and was due to Ma’at that the pharaohs had the authority to rule the land.
