I would like to remind everyone that the identity of the pharaoh during the time of Moses is still under debate. Popular belief is that this pharaoh was Ramses II. His first born son did in fact die young, but there is no proof that his death resulted from a curse. I too have seen the television documentary, hosted by Bob Brier, in which this speculative theory is presented. I hope we will soon learn of new evidence which supports or disproves such theories, as the information gained will be extremely valuable to our studies of ancient Egypt.
