The most famous king of Egypt in the modern day is best known not for any of his accomplishments but for his intact tomb discovered in 1922 CE.
The pharaoh Tutankhamun (1336-1327 BCE), though a young man when he came to the throne, did his best to restore Egyptian stability and religious practices after the reign of his father Akhenaten (1353-1336 BCE).
The speaker in the Chester Beatty Papyrus passage not only praises his beloved but presents the Egyptian ideal of feminine beauty at the time: My sister is unique - no one can rival her, for she is the most beautiful woman alive. Gold is nothing compared to her arms and her fingers are like lotus flowers. As for her thighs - they only add to her beauty (Lewis, 203).
