Pharaoh at this time was a God King, is my note. More particularly, Re himself sat at the top of things as such as a manifestation and his incarnations, dwelling in the actual world instead of out in the planes. It's a large organized, even stratified society with a hierarchical head, and if the canon change is that the god kings were instead simply various powerful figures affiliated with the gods in one way or another, it makes a question of who is running the country, is what I'm getting at. We're not Set, Osiris, Re, etc, we're not even their incarnations, we're just very strongly affiliated with them. Is Pharaoh similarly thereby some dude? Do we have dealings with said dude?
There was a line of Pharaohs well before the spellplague that up until the time of troubles were basically "dudes who were divine incarnations for Re/Ra" followed by his death and merging with Horus as "dudes who were incarnations for Horus-Re", followed by the time of troubles with "A dude who could call on Horus-Re's avatar to inhabit him sometimes". And then, y'know, Mulhorand exploded/got spellplagued. The manifestation/incarnation system didn't otherwise stop until the Time of Troubles. Until then Pharaoh was basically a piece of a god that sometimes died and was thus a new person who was a piece of a god. Mulhorand was never really ruled by a true mortal until very late in the scheme of things.
edit: So.. Mulhorand stuff.
So at the top of things you had the manifestations of the Gods, who are more less, the Gods, living in the world because of having... that's a long and overly involved story, so, short version, they live in the world. They're mostly trying to reconnect to their main divine selves than anything else. They govern Mulhorand through creating incarnations of themselves, which are more or less avatars incarnated in mortal bodies. If an incarnation dies, the manifested god just ultimately repeats the process when viable. They roll out in person for the Orcgate wars, where Re dies/merges with Horus-Re. The system otherwise basically resumes as it had been with the manifestations again being mostly withdrawn and trying to rejoin the bulk of their divine power out in the planes and things otherwise organized through incarnations.
And that's more than a bit unwieldy and I'm cool with changes to it, but it just raises a thing of "Who runs this joint". Even Unther at the time was otherwise being run by Enlil such that he bequeathed it to Gilgeam once he got sick of doing so.
