Amenhotep II, Pharaoh of Egypt
Egyptian kings didn't have to worry about how they'd get around in the afterlife. Boats, both full-size and models, were placed in their tombs to provide transport. A wooden model, nearly eight feet long, was found in the tomb of Amenhotep II (1427-1400 B.C.). Two steering oars were at the stern, which was painted with scenes of the king trampling foes from the levant and Nubia.
