When we go to histories, we have solid history about the Old Kingdom and 0-1 Dynasties in Egypt of 3100 BC and we have solid history about the Xia dynasty in China of 2070 BC. But before then, in both societies the leaders become more mythical or less certain. Pre-dynastic Egypt has several leaders named Hors and China has several emperors like the "Yellow Emperor" and the "Jade Emperor". But things are somewhat legendary from that time.
