Just being a self made man didn't happen very much.

Actually, it appears that Ancient Egypt, unlike our capitalist world, was one where a person could move up the social ladder quite freely. Experience and hard work could actually get you somewhere. I suspect this is the story with Horemheb. He proved himself as a soldier to become General (with good connections, I bet) and proved himself again to become Pharoah. Maybe he didn't so much prove himself to become Pharoa as have the military strength to take the throne from Nahktmin should he try to make a play for it.
