Who were the ancient Egyptian pharaohs?


Answer by  HilaryC (1382)

They were the kings of Ancient Egypt. They ruled over their kingdom and then their son took over. The ancestry lines were split up by dynasties. When a king line ended (a pharaoh had no son to take over), a new pharaoh was crowned and oversaw Egypt. Ramses II was one famous pharaoh.
