: This title comes from Arabic, meaning, “bearer

of burdens,” and was given to the chief minister

and adviser under the King. The most famous Vizier of ancient Egypt was Imhotep (yes, the “Mummy”), who was the Vizier of Pharaoh Djoser, and the world’s first known Wizard. The title often became synonymous with “Court Wizard,” especially when a Vizier was also renowned for his

Wizardry—such as Imhotep or Merlin.
