  Dynasty - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A dynasty is a succession of rulers who belong to the same family for generations.
Until the nineteenth century, it was taken for granted that a legitimate function of a monarch was to aggrandize his dynasty, that is, to increase the territory, wealth and power of family members.
A ruler in a dynasty is sometimes referred to as a dynast, but this term is also used to describe any member of a reigning family who retains succession rights to a throne.

 Qing Dynasty - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
During its reign, the Qing Dynasty consolidated its grip on China, integrated with Chinese culture, and saw the height of Imperial Chinese influence.
The Qing Dynasty was founded not by the Han Chinese, who form the majority of the Chinese population, but the Manchus, today an ethnic minority in China.
The Qing dynasty was characterized by a system of dual appointments by which each position in the central government had a Manchu and a Han assigned to it.

 Dynasty 3 - Sanakht, Djoser, Sekhemkhet, Khaba, Huni,
However, despite this, mud seal impressions bearing the name of Nethery-khet Djoser from the Abydos tomb of the last king of the 2nd Dynasty Khasekhemuy and connected with the burial seem to suggest that Khasekhemuy's widow and her already ruling son Djoser were in charge of the king's burial.
Because Queen Nimaethap, the wife of Khasekhemwy, the last king of the Second dynasty of Egypt, appears to have held the title of "Mother of the King", some writers argue that she was Djoser's mother and Khasekhemwy was his father.
His position as the last king of the 3rd Dynasty and Sneferu's immediate predecessor is confirmed by both the Papyrus Prisse and by the autobiographical inscription in the tomb of Metjen at Saqqara.

 Ancient Egypt: The Second Dynasty - by Francesco Raffaele
The meagre consistence of data for this period can be reasonably ascribed to two principal factors: 1) uncertain political situation during the most of the reigns of that period; 2) scarcity of modern researches; thus the obvious result is the relative paucity of material sources.
But this is, in my opinion, not a proof of the absence of Sneferka and co.: instead it only shows Hotepsekhemwy 's will to erase those surely local rulers whose power could have had the opportunity to arise in the aftermath of the end of a royal line with the death of Qa'a.
Only Second and Third Dynasty broken pottery and later burials have been found on these monument's area; moreover the great 'Wall of the Boss' and the Ptahhotep enclosure seem to have at least some parts of the walls never completed, therefore we must expect that these might be unfinished constructions.
