The assassination of Pharaoh Horemheb XII, on May 15, 2010 drew near worldwide condemnation.  Most nations expressed support and sympathy for the Egyptian Empire.  A few notable exceptions were the Kingdom of Ghana, and the United Islamic Republic.

Domestic Reactions

Mass mourning was observed throughout the entire Egyptian Empire, most prominently in Egypt Proper.  Temples of Osiris and Anubis were crowded by people throughout the Empire, as were Egyptian mosques and churches.  On the day of Horemheb's funeral, crowds assembled along the Nile to observe the funerary boat traveling down.  Flowers were set adrift upon small rafts, and floated down the river.

Many expressed their support to Prince, now Pharaoh, Seti.  Rallies were held across the entire Empire, proclaiming loyalty to him, with people waving flags, and singing "Hail to the Pharaoh".  Lord Paimu, Governor of Malagasy, attended one rally, saying, "It is with great sorrow that I observe the passing of his Majesty, Pharaoh Horemheb.  And it is with great pride, that I declare my loyalty to his Majesty, Pharaoh Seti."
