A cartouche is an important symbol in Ancient Egypt. Find out more about the definition, purpose and historical impact of the Egyptian cartouche in this lesson.


A cartouche is an ancient Egyptian hieroglyphic name plate, shaped like an oval with a horizontal bar at the base of the oval and a king's name written inside of the oval. If there was not enough space, for example, if the name was excessively long, the Egyptians could write the cartouche horizontally instead of vertically, and put the line on the side going up and down, instead of horizontally at the bottom of the oval.

The word cartouche is actually the French word for a gun cartridge or bullet. When Napoleon took his army on an expedition to Egypt, the soldiers remarked that the shape of the name plate looked like a cartouche, or gun cartridge, and the name stuck. The Egyptian name for the cartouche was shen, which means 'to encircle.'

Purpose of a Cartouche

Traditionally, the cartouche was written on tombs and coffins to mark who was inside. The ancient Egyptians believed that each person had two souls, the Ba and the Ka, which needed to find their way back to the body after death in order to move on to the afterlife. Sometimes, the pharaohs would wear an amulet-style cartouche, to help ward them from evil spirits and attract good luck.


The cartouche is a hieroglyphic symbol, with the oval signifying a rope, and the horizontal line symbolizing the rope being tied together at the bottom to form an enclosed loop. It was believed by the Egyptians that the rope circle represented everything enclosed by the sun, symbolizing the king's power over the universe.
