A royal family is the extended family of a monarch. Generally, the head of a royal family is a king or queen regnant. The phrase "imperial family" more appropriately describes the extended family of an emperor or empress regnant, while the phrases "ducal family", "grand ducal family" or "princely family" are more appropriate in reference to the relatives of a reigning duke, grand duke, or prince. It is also considered proper in some circles to refer to the extended relations of a deposed monarch and his or her descendants as a royal family.
The granting of Royal Assent
is the formal method by which the Sovereign
of the United Kingdom
, or the Sovereign's representative in Commonwealth realms
, completes the process of the enactment of legislation by formally assenting to an Act of Parliament
. While the power to withhold Royal Assent was once exercised often, it is almost never exercised under modern constitutional conventions. The power remains as one of the reserve powers
of the monarch. The granting of the Royal Assent is sometimes associated with elaborate ceremonies. In the United Kingdom, for instance, the Sovereign appoints Lords Commissioners
who in turn announce that Royal Assent has been granted at a ceremony at the Palace of Westminster
, Buckingham Palace
or another royal residence. Two methods of notifying the Parliament are available: the Lords Commissioners or the Sovereign's representatives may grant Assent in the presence of both Houses of Parliament; alternatively, each House may be notified separately, usually by the presiding officer.

Ahmose I (mummified head pictured)
was a pharaoh
of ancient Egypt
and the founder of the Eighteenth dynasty
. He was a member of the Theban
royal house, the son of King Tao II Seqenenre
, and brother of the last King of the Seventeenth dynasty
, King Kamose
. Ahmose I assumed the throne after the death of his brother. During his reign he completed the conquest and expulsion of the Hyksos
from the delta region
, restored Theban
rule over the whole of Egypt, and successfully reasserted Egyptian power in its formerly subject territories of Nubia
. He then reorganized the administration of the country, reopened quarries, mines, and trade routes, and began massive construction projects of a type that had not been undertaken since the time of the Middle Kingdom
. This building program culminated in the construction of the last pyramid built by native Egyptian rulers. Ahmose's reign laid the foundations for the New Kingdom
, under which Egyptian power reached its peak. His reign is usually dated to about 1550-1525 BC.
