The Kings of Egypt were not called Pharaohs by the ancient Egyptians. This word was used by the Greeks and Hebrews, and today is commonly used for the ancient Kings of Egypt. We really do not know how many kings ruled in Egypt, for at times in its ancient past the country was split up, and there were at least several kings at the same time. There was also probably kings who ruled regions of Egypt before recorded history, and in fact, several ancient historians record legendary Pharaohs who became Egyptian gods.

It depends upon what period of history you are talking about. In ancient times, the pharoahs were absolute monarchs. Then Egypt became a province in a number of empires: Persi…an, Greek, Roman, Byzantine, Arabian and Ottoman. Finally it developed its own Caliphate, the Fatimids. That came to an end at the end of the First World War, and Egypt became a British protectorate. In the 1950's Col. Nasser was a military dictator who took control of the country. The country has not moved far from military dictatorship since, although their constitution has become more representative. And since the Arab spring, Egypt seems to be moving toward a truly representative democracy.
