Usually when an army lost the war, the leader got their head bashed in by a battle mace. No one knows if the kings bashed the heads in theirselves. Countries often end wars by signing a peace treaty.

There were many different ranks in the Ancient Egyptian army. At the top of the triangle is the king. Next in line was the general. Then there is the officer. In the middle of the triangle is the light skirmisher, mercenary, infantry, Chariot. At the bottom of the triangle is the servant, cook, priest, scribe, groom & armorer, and doctor.
The Ancient Egyptian shield was made of wood and covered in cowhide. It had a bronze boss in the middle of the shield. At some point scientists had discovered a ceremonial type of armor in the tomb of Tutankhamen. Tutankhamen was a young pharaoh. In fact, he was a little boy. He rejected monotheism, worshiped the gods burried in Valley Of The Kings. This armor was made of gold scales and inlaid with semiprecious stones. To bad we don't do that when someone dies here in America.
