Imhotep was second in charge of Egypt. He designed the Djoser Pyramid Complex at Saqqara. He is also credited with saving his people from a seven year famine. He was not of royal blood. He was born a commoner. When he died, he was burried in a tomb in a coffin like many of the Pharaohs. Many years after his death he was deified.
