Hm

 m

  1. the king of Egypt as a particular individual who serves as an incarnation of kingship
  2. an incarnation? of a god (e.g. as a statue)

Usage notes[edit]

Conventionally, but misleadingly, translated as Majesty due to its common use when addressing or referring to the king; note that the king sometimes also uses it when referring to himself.

Only Egyptian kings were considered nswt and ḥm; foreign kings were regarded as merely ḥqꜣ or wr.
