EGYPTIAN RULERS
Mohammed could have heard the viewpoint that the Hyksos, rulers of Egypt, were called kings (not pharaohs) from someone who had heard about the works of the first century Roman-Jewish historian Josephus (Yosef ben Matityahu) who quoted that view from the “Aegyptiaca” (“History of Egypt”) written by the 3rd century BC Egyptian priest and historian Manetho.
WORSHIP PHARAOH AS THE GOD
It is not a miracle revelation in Quran verses 26:29 28:38 and 79:24 to claim the ancient Egyptians worshiped the pharaoh as a god.
The Greek historian Herodotus (484 BC – 425 BC) wrote about the pharaoh being worshiped as a god  Mohammed could have borrowed the “no other gods” part from the Judeo-Christian Third Commandment “You shall have no other gods before me”.
The command that Muslims must not worship any god other than Allah is in Quran verse 2:22
