Giza was chosen by King Khufu and his successors, Khafra and Menkaure, to erect their funerary complexes. Besides the three Great Pyramids, the funerary boats of Khufu, and the Sphinx, the site also contains the tombs of the courtiers of the Fourth Dynasty and those of the workmen who built the royal pyramids and private tombs.
