Ramesses II

de bene esse: literally, of well-being, morally acceptable but subject to future validation or exception

Although the Pharaoh used red henna in his old age, microscopic inspection of the roots of Ramesses II's hair proved that the king's hair was originally red, which suggests that he came from a family of redheads. 
This has more than just cosmetic significance: in ancient Egypt people with red hair were associated with the god Seth, the slayer of Osiris, and the name of Ramesses II's father, Seti I, means "Follower of Seth."
