THE WHITE CROWN OF UPPER EGYPT

The White Crown of Upper Egypt is also known as the Hedjet crown. It looks a bit like a bishop's mitre and was probably made from cloth or felt.

The White crown was worn by the rulers of Upper Egypt before the unification with Lower Egypt. Like the Royal Vulture Crown, it had a special association with the goddess Nekhbet.

Horus, the falcon god, was also usually shown wearing the White Crown.
