An Egyptian ankh necklace

The ankh (in ancient Egyptian "ˁnḫ") is an unavoidable symbol of ancient Egypt. Known as the Egyptian hieroglyph "☥", the ankh is also called "key of life", "key of the Nile", "bow of life", "knot of life", "cross with a noose", "Egyptian cross" and "crux ansata".

Because of its similarity to the Christian cross, the ankh entered into Coptic symbolism (the Copts were the ancient Christian inhabitants of Egypt). Some ankhs were always placed in the tomb of the pharaohs to protect their souls during their travel in the Duat (an afterlife world that they have to cross to arrive to the pleasant world-paradise of the god Osiris).
 

A pendant from ancient Egypt

Ancient Egypt was a theocratic monarchy. Much more than a king, the pharaoh was Egypt's chief administrator, head of armies, chief magistrate and supreme priest.
 
Indeed, the pharaoh had a mission to fulfill: to implement the rule of Maat on Earth (which is to ensure harmony between men and heaven). Thus, the pharaoh is the guarantor of the morals of his people, thus helping to ensure the integrity of their souls.
