Ram­ses II be­comes co-re­gent

At the age of 14, an ado­les­cent Ram­ses shared his fa­ther’s throne. Like a royal ap­pren­tice­ship, the prince learnt what it was like to rule An­cient Egypt un­der the watch­ful eye of his fa­ther, Seti I. To fully pre­pare him for what it meant to be the king, Ram­ses also re­ceived mil­i­tary train­ing, held sev­eral posts in the army, and even fought in bat­tle.
