Solving the riddle of the Sphinx Steven Mueller Solving the riddle of the Sphinx Steven Mueller

On April 30, 2009, American historian and author Steven Mueller revealed his fascinating theory regarding the origin of the Great Sphinx, following the release of his most recent book, The Pharaohs of Ancient Egypt.

Questions surrounding the Sphinx have long baffled generations of tourists and scholars alike. Why was it built, what does it symbolize, and most importantly, who built it? Following years of research, Mueller says he believes the Sphinx was the work of a little-known pharaoh.

Traditionally, it has been held that Khafre, a king of the Fourth Dynasty whose pyramid sits behind the Sphinx, built the monument in his own likeness. Mueller believes, however, that the monument was created more than four and a half thousand years ago by Djedefre, Khafre’s half-brother and the son of Khufu, the builder of the Great Pyramid of Giza.
