 Egyptian Pharaohs : Early Dynastic Period : Dynasty 1 : Menes
As "Menes", Horus Aha is reputed to have founded Memphis and Crocodopolis and was the first king to unify Upper and Lower Egypt -- the beginning to the Ancient Egyptian civilization that did not end until the Roman era with the crowning of Augustus Caesar.
This assertion is based on the hints of his birth name, Mn, that have been found associated with the Horus Aha title.
Aha also has a tomb at Saqqara, (No 3357) that is the first known tomb with a boat buried beside it.

 Egyptian kings - Aha
Aha was a king who clearly ruled over all of Egypt.
His tomb is in the royal cemetery of Abydos and his name means "fighting hawk" or simply "warrior".

 Egypt: Aha! Or is it King Menes?, A Feature Tour Egypt Story
We know the name of Hor-Aha, or Aha, the Fighter or Fighting Hawk, by his name sign appearing in a serekh on a potsherd, now in the British Museum, and by an ivory label from the tomb at Naqada of Nithotep (possibly his mother and the wife of King Narmer).
If Aha was the successor to Narmer, that is, the first king to begin his reign over a fully unified Egypt, it may make sense that he would establish a new capital and undertake such a ceremony as may have been represented.
Although it is believed that Aha built his grave at Abydos, his name has been found inscribed on material from cemeteries in the Memphite region, at Tura, Tarkhan and Helwan.

 Virtual-Egypt - The Egyptian People's Papyrus
Aha's son and heir, Djer, was born to a lesser ranked wife, Hent.
Aha, unlike the fabled Menes, was not the unifier of Egypt but did begin the great dynastic era of the nation.
Aha is listed as having conducted a campaign against the Nubians, perhaps on the occasion of Egypt's southern expansion into the First Cataract.

 The Naqada Label
The Naqada label has since often been forwarded as the ultimate proof that Menes is to be identified with the Horus Aha.
Neither Djer nor Djet, Aha’s successors, appear to have used this name and if one accepts Grdsellof’s interpretation that the Naqada label provides us with the Nebti-name of Narmer, then Aha too does not appear to have used it.
Against the interpretation of the signs in the booth as a Nebti-name, it should be noted that the Nebti-name does not become a standard part of the royal titulary until the reign of Den, several generations after Aha.

 Menes - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Another name for Menes has various spellings: Hor Aka, Hor-Aka, and Hor-Aha; Hor-Aka can be translated as "Horus of the Reeds", possibly in allusion to the legend in which Isis hid Horus in the Nile Delta among papyri and reeds.
The growing academic consensus is that Menes either refers to Narmer or, more likely, to his successor, Hor-Aha.
In Ancient Egyptian legend, there was a battle between Horus (a patron deity of Lower Egypt) and Set (patron deity of Upper Egypt).

 Egypt: Abu Simbel in Nubia, A Feature Tour Egypt Story
Aha's claim as Menes comes mostly from the hieroglyphs (phonetic mn, sometimes referred to as men) associated with his name on various objects.
However as a side note, it seems that Narmer's name was recently discovered incised on a piece of an imported Egyptian wine jar in the Nahal Tillah region of southern Israel by the UCSD archaeological research expedition.
If Narmer is considered to be Menes, then Aha would be the second ruler of the 1st Dynasty.

 Excavations: Nubia (Sudan) A-Group Royal Cemetery
Some scholars have interpreted a tablet associated with the Egyptian pharaoh Aha of Dynasty I (about 3007-2975 B.C.E.) as an early commemoration of a victory over the Nubians.
This scene was probably created during the reign of one of Aha's immediate successors, Djer (about 2974-2927 B.C.E.).
This monument appears to be a record of an Egyptian raid against the Nubians in the vicinity of the second cataract.

Other spellings for Menes are Hor Aka and Hor Aha; Hor-Aka can be translated "Horus of the Reeds" possibly in allusion the legend in which Isis hid Horus in the Nile Delta among papyri and reeds.
It interesting this name because when speaking about king it is difficult to forget the battle between Horus (a patron deity of Lower Egypt) and Set (patron deity of Upper Egypt) in Set was defeated and the kingdom got under the rule of Horus the first of all Egypt.

 Ancient Egypt - Abydos; the Early Kings, Narmer, Scorion, Menes, Djer,Den, Djet.
True, the city was founded during the reign of Aha but if recent dicsoveries are to be believed, Aha is the one to be credited with the foundation, not Menes.
This sets aside the belief by some scholars that Aha was identified with the mythical Menes, instead it is said that Menes could have been a name or a title for either of them, and then possibly the nebti name.
Therefore Narmer is put as possibly the father of Aha and in any case his predecessor.

 Dynasty 0 - Dynasty Zero
The predecessor of Hor Aha was ceratinly the famous NARMER.
Furthermore on the Turin papyrus it directly follows the Shemsw Hor (which in turn come after the dynasties of gods) and is written twice: on the first of the two lines with a human determinative, and on the second one with the god determinative.
The different writing of his name and the Nekhen finds can't be a certain indication of the Hierakonpolite origin of Scorpion II: Iry Hor had a different royal name mark too, and Narmer was also known at Nekhen.

 Francesco Raffaele Egyptology News
The first 12 boats were cleared in recent years, but the prows of the northernmost ones had been already reached in mid/late 1980s when they had been erroneously interpreted as the bastioned corner of a small mudbrick enclosure (Hor Aha?) which would lie between the Shunet ez-Zabib and the Western Mastaba (see plan).
Their age should be more than 400 years older than Khwfw's (Cheops) and, although found nearby the vast enclosure (Shunet ez Zebib) of Khasekhemwy, it appears possible that they belong to the second king of the first dynasty, Horus AHA, owner of Umm el Qa'ab tombs B19.
As for the wood long distance trade, we know that Aha's immediate predecessor Narmer had a great deal of relations with the Near East (Canaan) as attested in various sites expecially by Serekhs with his name onto wave handled jars (fragments).

 Ist Dynasty
To the time of king’s Hor Aha rule are dated two big sepulclar complexes at Naqada and Saqqara.
Events taking place during the rule of Hor Aha are known to us mainly from four annual plates.
Number and size of mastabas discovered at Sakkara suggest that was a burial place of the kings of the unified land while tombs at Abydos are merely cenotaphs (empty tombs).

Herodotus records that Hor Aha dammed the Nile just south of the city, diverting it so that he could build on the reclaimed land.
A strict watch was kept on the dam - the Persians, he said, strengthened it every year because, should it be breached, Memphis would have been overwhelmed.
The site was obviously chosen initially for its political importance in a newly unified country, rather then its situation as a good building site.

I think it would be safe to assume that absence of evidence does not provide evidence of absence, but up until reading this book of Petrie's, the earliest queen I was aware of was Neithotep - wife of Narmer and mother of Aha.

 Asiatic Calendar (History of the World)
Several anthroplogist say that Menes (Aha) was actually the first king of this era.
It is also said that Menes is also called Aha by other students of Khem's history, but again this seems like three separate kings spread throught this time spand of 400 years.
Since, he was the last king of the first dynasty he found the entire Fari system; however, I will add on by saying that Menes or most likely Aha's reign ended just as the next pharaoh's began.
