You're right---but his place in a chain of Monarchs doesn't mean he didn't make himself Monarch by brute force.
Monarchs do not always inherit, and their territories can change dramatically---greater or smaller---while their titles grow ever longer. Again, the Romans and Byzantines are a model.

Typhon is the _last_ Monarch. That there were more than one is
evidenced by the chain of mountains carved into the likenesses of
Monarchs; that he is the last is evidenced by his being succeeded by
the first Autarch.
Ergo, I don't believe he built the Empire.
