Pharaohs were usually born to the father of a previous Pharaoh and chosen by him to teach to be the ruler. The Queen was royal blood and would rule if her son was too young during the death of his Pharaoh father. Other times, foreign armies would overthrow the Pharaoh and appoint themselves in the position of power.
