Ramesses II Passport

MMDE: Ramesses II (1279-1213 BC) was issued a passport in 1974

Sometimes the Mandela Effect is pointed to as explaining historical facts which seem to appear from nowhere, and they are expected to be much more widely known.

One such is the curious fact that Ramesses II was actually issued a passport in 1974, even though he'd been dead for thousands of years.

It was necessary to do this because his 3,000 year old body had to be flown to Paris for repairs, and the legislation in force did not take into account how long ago the individual died.
