The reign of Khufu was an average length. He grew up to marry and have nine sons, one of whom was his successor, and fifteen daughters. He was believed to be a cruel and ruthless king, who showed little or no mercy. He is said to have taken the throne in his twenties and have ruled for about twenty years. He began building his pyramid first thing, and is was finished in his last years on the throne.
