** Rameses II is immortalized as ''Ozymandias'' by Percy Shelley and as the BigBad in Film/TheTenCommandments, Film/ThePrinceOfEgypt and Film/ExodusGodsAndKings. The actual guy shows up in Norman Mailer's ''Ancient Evenings''. Did we mention that the Biblical and Rabbinic tradition refers to Moses' adversary as simply "The Pharoah", that the idea of Rameses II chasing the Jews out of Egypt is entirely a mid-20th Century invention?

* The UsefulNotes/JewishRevolts, if at all, are almost exclusively invoked in connection with the Life of Jesus Christ ([[MyFriendsAndZoidberg and]] [[Film/MontyPythonsLifeOfBrian Brian]]) and the rise of Christianity, which sprang as a consequence. Such fascinating figures as Flavius Josephus, Simon Bar Khokba, the Sicarii (aka the OG Ninja and Asasiyun) and events like the fall of Jerusalem and the siege of Masada are almost never featured in HistoricalFiction, separate from the Life of Christ.

Eventually he is sent outside of the city walls to deliver a call for help from the invading Russian army.
