Modern systems of government, with their divisions of responsibilities between a powerful individual and various councils, had precursors in ancient Egyptian civilization. Consider the United Kingdom, with a monarch, a prime minister and a parliament. In ancient Egypt, these roles had similar divisions, with a pharaoh, a governor, and a council of elders for administration.
