We know Moses was raised in Pharaoh's kingdom. From Exodus 7:7 we know Moshe was around 80 when he lead the Jewish people out of Egypt. But how old was Pharaoh during all of this?

"Moshe was around 80" by Exodus 7:7, not (just) a midrash. – msh210 Jul 9 '14 at 3:03
@msh210 O right sorry, didnt realize that to tell the truth. – armoose Jul 9 '14 at 5:11
No problem: that's why there's an "edit" link (to edit the question). (I've done it for you.) – msh210 Jul 9 '14 at 6:21
The pharaoh he grew up with is not the one he had the showdown with. Which are you asking about? – Monica Cellio Jul 9 '14 at 11:51
With multiple pharaohs and no exact birth dates (or other dates for that matter) it is probably impossible to know. – LazerA Jul 9 '14 at 12:25
