Chephren Pyramid
 ( Khafre)
Chephren was the son of Cheops, he did succeed. Not by erecting a bigger pyramid, his became 3 meters shorter and 15% smaller in volume.

But he placed the pyramid on a mound 10 meters higher than the ground of Cheops. So that is the reason why his looks bigger.

Chephren (or Khafre) was a pharaoh of the 4th Dynasty and ruled for 27 years, from 2558 until 2532 BCE
