I believe that the newly appointed Pharoah and his new royal wife would be taken to one of the temples. Priests dressed as gods (normally Horus and Thoth) would cleanse them with water from the nile. I think they applied other balms etc... (Remember the Pharoah was thought of as a God that walked the Earth). I think they would then be dressed accordingly and presented with weapons to strike down his enemy. Then he would be crowned with the two crowns of upper and lower Egypt. I think by Priests dressed as the Gods Horus and Seth. This was to unite the two lands in one Pharoah. I think they also gave him the two Sceptres for power and magic. He would then go out into the courtyard of the temple and be greated by a select few and sit on his new throne.

This is all off the top of my head. Maybe someone else can enlighten you. Very Happy

I just ran across some info about that on this site:
http://www.mummytombs.com/egypt/pharaohmummies.htm

If you mean by "the pyramids" the ones at Giza, then it seems that there may be parts of the third of those kings found:
"Part of Menkaure's body may be in the collection of the British Museum"

Pyramids were buried for a long period of time: from the 4th dynasty to the 17th dynasty. And later this practice was picked up again by the Nubians (25th dynasty, plus the time they reigned in Nubia)




Old Kingdom
Dyn. 3
Part of Djoser's mummy is in the collection of Qasr el-Aini in Cairo

Dyn. 4
Part of Senefru's mummy is in the collection of Qasr el-Aini in Cairo
Part of Menkaure's mummy may be in the collection of the British Museum in London

Dyn. 5
Part of Shepseskare Isi's mummy is in the collection of Qasr el-Aini in Cairo
The left portion of Djedkare Isesi's mummified body is in the collection of Qasr el-Aini in Cairo
In 1880, Maspero discovered Unas' mummified, linen-wrapped, and well-preserved left arm and hand along with skull fragments; Cairo Museum

Dyn. 6
Teti, His poorly-mummified shoulder and accompanying arm were found; Cairo Museum
Part of Pepi I's mummy is in the collection of the Cairo Museum


Middle Kingdom
Dyn. 11
Mentuhotep II Only a few of his bones survive in the collection of the British Museum; two of his royal wives fared better--both of their mummies are in the collection of Qasr el-Aini in Cairo

Dyn. 13
Hor's mummy was only a skeleton (except for the head with its unremoved brain); Cairo Museum

Second Intermediate Period
Dyn. 17
Taa II He died in battle, which his mummy clearly shows. Poorly mummified (probably because this took place near the battlefield) Known for having a good set of teeth (unusual among Egyptian royalty); Cairo Museum




Dyn. 25 Taharqa may have been found, but records are unclear.




I don't know where the owner of the site gets their information from, so I don't know how accurate it is.
