I randomly found a lovely old edition of this book at the Oxfam by our house. I'd not come across any books by Georg Ebers before but really liked the idea of 19th century fiction about Egypt written by an Egyptologist. The book was quite lovely. It was a lot like Greek drama with much of the action taking place of stage and people sitting around in rooms talking.

Little be hard to start, but fully captivating later on!
Perfect way to get more knowlege of anicent history (570-575 BC). By the eyes of egyptian princess it tells about Darius the Great, how he became a king of Persia. I found a lot of interesting fact of previous dynasty of Cyrus and Cambyses.
But it not just a dry historical facts. It is a great roman about love and fate.
I read a few books of Ebers, but this one is definitely my favorite.
I think you will enjoy this book if you you like "Montez
This book is deceptively named. Even the preface (all four of them) are deceptive about the content. I began expecting to read about Egyptian culture only to be redirected to the Persian. The story (or the fictional part) was a good read with the expected drama. The historical part was more interesting for me (especially the references and notes). I enjoyed reading this book and would recommend it if you are interested in the genre or historical period.

Georg Moritz Ebers, German Egyptologist and novelist, discovered the Egyptian medical papyrus, of ca 1550 BCE, named for him (see Ebers papyrus) at Luxor (Thebes) in the winter of 1873–74.

Ebers early conceived the idea of popularizing Egyptian lore by means of historical romances. Eine ägyptische Königstochter was published in 1864 and obtained great success. His subsequent works of the same kind—
