What did the pharaoh wear?

The pharaoh would probably have worn robes, skirts, tunics and gloves made of the finest Egyptian linen (the Egyptians did not have cotton until the Roman period). Boxes and baskets of clothes were buried with pharaohs along with food and valuables, so that they could be used in the afterlife. Through studying these clothes, and wall reliefs showing the pharaoh, people have been able to learn a lot about what the Egyptian pharaohs wore.
