Zuma Fact: #106: Pharaoh Ramesses II!

Ramesses II (Ramesses the Great), the third Egyptian pharaoh of the Nineteenth dynasty, and the most powerful pharaoh of the Egyptian Empire, had more than 160 children. 

His successor was Merneptah, his thirteenth son, and forth child of his second wife Isetnofret. Merneptah came to the throne only because all his older brothers died while Ramesses was still alive. He became pharaoh at the age of 60.
