Montu was a falcon-god of war in ancient Egyptian religion, an embodiment of the conquering vitality of the pharaoh. He was worshipped in Upper Egypt and in the district of Thebes. Whom victory was foretold as he came from the womb,Whom valor was given while in the egg,Bull firm of heart as he treads the arena,Godly king going forth like Montu on victory day. Montu's name, shown in Egyptian hieroglyphs to the right, is technically transcribed as mntw; because of the difficulty in transcribing Egyptian vowels, it is realized as Mont, Montju, Ment or Menthu. A ancient god, Montu was a manifestation of the scorching effect of Ra, the sun — and as such appeared under the epithet Montu-Ra; the destructiveness of this characteristic led to him gaining characteristics of a warrior, becoming a revered war-god. The Egyptians thought that Montu would attack the enemies of Maat while inspiring, at the same time, glorious warlike exploits, it is possible that Montu-Ra and Atum-Ra symbolized the two kingships of Upper and Lower Egypt.

When linked with Horus, Montu's epithet was "Horus of the Strong Arm". Because of the association of raging bulls with strength and war, the Egyptians believed that Montu manifested himself as a white, black-snouted bull named Buchis — to the point that, in the Late Period, Montu was depicted with a bull's head too; this special sacred bull wore precious crowns and bibs. In Egyptian art, Montu was depicted as a falcon-headed or bull-headed man, with his head surmounted by the solar disk and two feathers; the falcon was a symbol of the sky and the bull was a symbol of strength and war. He could wield various weapons, such as a curved sword, a spear and arrows, or knives: such military iconography was widespread in the New Kingdom. Montu had several consorts, including the little-known Theban goddesses Tjenenyet and Iunit, a female form of Ra, Raet-Tawy, he was revered as one of the patrons of the city of Thebes and its fortresses. The sovereigns of the 11th Dynasty chose Montu as a protective and dynastic deity, inserting references to him in their own names.

For example, four pharaohs of the 11th Dynasty were called Mentuhotep, which means "Montu is satisfied": Mentuhotep I — maybe a fictional figure. The Greeks associated Montu with their god of war Ares — although that did not prevent his assimilation to Apollo due to the solar radiance that distinguished him; the cult of this military god enjoyed great prestige under the pharaohs of the 11th Dynasty, whose expansionism and military successes led, around 2055 BC, to the reunification of Egypt, the end of a period of chaos known today as the First Intermediate Period, a new era of greatness for the country. This part of Egyptian history, known as the Middle Kingdom, was a period in which Montu assumed the role of supreme god — before gradually being surpassed by the other Theban god Amun, destined to become the most important deity of the Egyptian pantheon. From the 11th Dynasty onward, Montu was considered the symbol of the pharaohs as rulers and winners, as well as their inspirer on the battlefield.

The Egyptian armies were surmounted by the insignia of the "four Montu", all represented while trampling and piercing enemies with a spear in a classic pugnacious pose. A ceremonial battle ax, belonging to the funeral kit of Queen Ahhotep II, Great Royal Wife of the warlike pharaoh Kamose, who lived between the 17th and 18th Dynasty, represents Montu as a proud winged griffin: an iconography influenced by the same Syriac origin which inspired Minoan art. Egypt's greatest general-kings called themselves "Mighty Bull", "Son Of Montu", "Montu Is with His Strong/Right Arm". Thutmose III, "the Napoleon of Egypt", was described in ancient times as a "Valiant Montu on the Battlefield". An inscription from his son Amenhotep II recalls that the eighteen-year-old pharaoh was able to shoot arrows through copper targets while driving a war chariot, commenting that he had the skill and strength of Montu; the latter's grandson, Amenhotep III the Magnificent, called himself "Montu of the Rulers" in spite of his own peaceful reign.

In the narrative of the Battle of Kadesh, Ramesses II the Great — who proudly called himself "Montu of the Two Lands" — was said to have seen the enemy and "raged at them like Montu, Lord of Thebes". His majesty passed the fortress of Tjaru, like Montu; every country trembled before him, fear was in their hearts The goodly watch in life and health, in the tent of his majesty, was on the highland south of Kadesh. When his majesty appeared like the rising of Re, he assumed the adornments of Montu; the Temple complex of Montu in Medamud, the ancient Medu, less than five kilometers north-east of today's Luxor, was built by the great Pharaoh Senusret III of the 12th Dynasty on a pre-existing sacred site of the Old Kingdom. The temple courtyard was used as a dwelling for the living Buchis bull, revered as an incarnation of Montu; the main entrance was to t

On the day of the wedding, while preparing for the wedding, through the window he spots Sofia, whose mother is the caterer for the wedding and Sofia her assistant. Parallel to this, the cash-pressed Brando family business deceives and defrauds Dagoberto, who represents a group of poor homeowners, who are said to benefit from the project that Daniela's father is investing in, but the Brandos, take possession of the houses in the neighborhood and refuse to pay for them; this drives Dagoberto to take his own life rather than face the neighbors.
