His grandfather died two years later making his father to be crowned Pharaoh. Ramses than became “First commander of the Army” (1) at age 10 by his father. Ramses was trained by his father and by the many generals on how to command an army.
Ramses Ramses the Great ruled as the greatest pharaoh of all times. Also known as Ramses II, he was born in 1304 B.C., and was given the name the Justice of Ray is Powerful. He had the knowledge of the kingdom, and became the focus of the court at an early age. Ramses and his father spent most of their time together. As a young crown prince, Ramses II was appointed a co-ruler by his aging father, Seti I, and fully inherited the throne at age 24 when his father died.
He was a keen hunter, trained the army and may have taken part in battles. However, he suffered from many illnesses prior to his death. Despite his youth, Tutankhamun was a very effective leader of Egypt. Tutankhamun was a very effective ruler of the Egyptian empire because he reformed the religion after his father had changed it during his reign.

Like a lot of kings, queens, and other monarchs, Ramesses inherited the throne from his father. Ramesses was born to King Seti I and his mother, Queen Tuya in the year of 1303 B.C.E.

As fascinating as that might be, we will find in this paper that Egypt is still very rich in culture, diversity, and religions on its own terms. Unfortunately, in the past three years it has become a country of toppled governments, military coups, and vicious brutal disorder within their streets. Though Egypt may not be the massive dynasty it once was before the Roman Empire, it still holds the title “The Gift of the Nile” Every school kid learns something about Egyptian history.
