Real World Background

"Pharaoh" is the familiar title of the kings who ruled over ancient Egypt. It derives from the Egyptian words "per aa", meaning "great house" or "palace" (an ancient Egyptian counterpart, apparently, to the use of the term "White House" to refer to the U.S. presidential administration as well as to the literal building).
