There are numerous stories about Egypt, many of which have rattled the original story and placed doubt on the general public. One of them is told by a missing Danish Navy captain who, on one of his exploring trips, discovered that the Pyramids of Egypt were not three, as previously thought, but that there was a fourth pyramid, and that this pyramid was glossy black in color. Many ideas have been developed around this myth, primarily since there is no evidence of a gigantic black pyramid. However, there is history and proof of such a journey, and no one knows what happened to the fourth pyramid.
Egypt’s Fourth Pyramid Evidence
During the 1700s, Frederic Norden, a Danish navy captain and explorer, took extensive notes, observations, and drawings of everything around him, including people, pharaonic monuments, architecture, facilities, maps, and so on, all of which were published in his posthumous book “Voyage d’Egypte et de Nubie.”
Norden recounts the enigmatic pyramid on page 120 of his book “Voyage d’Egypte et de Nubie” (Travels in Egypt and Nubia).
“The main pyramids are in the east, south-east of Giza… There are four of them; they demand the greatest attention from the curious; although we observe seven or eight others in the vicinity, they are nothing compared to the previous ones… The two pyramids further north are the tallest, standing five hundred feet perpendicular. The other two are significantly less, but they have some quirks that keep them scrutinized and admired.”
“They are uncoated, near, and resemble the others, but not in the same way as the first.” It does, however, contain a unique feature that begs to be highlighted: its peak is capped by a single massive stone that appears to have served as a pedestal… A fourth pyramid has been constructed, higher than the average, of a stone blacker than common granite and equally Lasted. Its top is constructed of a yellowish stone. I’ll tell about its upper half later, which ends in a cube. It is likewise placed outside the line of the others, closer to the west… it forms a series with the other three.”
Norden’s text was released after his death, and it included pictures from the trip he had led to Egypt. The facts in the article has piqued the interest of experts who speak of a magnificent black pyramid at Giza. In the book, he portrays the pyramid as a black stone that was considerably harder than granite. Skeptics argue that he may have misunderstood the satellite pyramids surrounding the top three for a fourth. This, however, does not make sense given that the satellite pyramids were constructed of sandstone.
However, academics and Egyptologists prefer to dispute the idea of a fourth black pyramid at Giza, saying that it may have wrongly taken one of the pyramids known as Menakure’s satellite pyramids as a fourth pyramid.
This, however, contradicts everything Norden outlines in his book, as he accomplishes it with such detail that he even points to it on the map as a fourth pyramid. Furthermore, the facts it provides are so accurate that there is no room for doubt or imagination on the part of the explorer. Norden clearly shows a pyramid made of a more heavy stone and a gleaming black hue.
Surprisingly, the Danish explorer’s description and images are of astonishing quality, positioning the fourth black pyramid at a particular distance from the current three pyramids of Giza. Norden also posits the presence of seven (perhaps eight) other pyramids on the Giza plateau in his book. However, there is no sign of them at this time.
