I'm not sure about this but was Romulus perhaps deified as Quirinus, and before Caesar? On https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quirinus#Deified_Romulus I read "By the end of the 1st century BCE, Quirinus would be considered to be the deified legendary king."

I'm assuming Ramesses actually means "son of Ra" rather than "sun of Ra." The Sun God probably doesn't need another sun ;)

it was a popular form of government around that time, when religious leaders first started gaining power, then got folded into the state, as any institution with power starts to wish to maintain the status quo. And given the extreme, obscene power/wealth/education/health and other disparities that often existed between these kings and their subjects, they practically were gods.

Could you please accept Tenzin Gyatso as a type-in for Dalai Lama?

Level 67

Nobody knows him by his full name. That's like calling the pope "Jorge Mario Bergoglio".

Tenzin Gyatso is equivalent to calling the Pope Francis. The Dalai Lama's birth name is Lhamo Thondup.

I know it was mentioned before, but Quirinus/Romulus should've been the first one, Julius Caesar the second.

Furthermore, he wasn't officially deified by the Senate. This answer fails on multiple fronts.
