Why did the plague of frogs begin specifically with Pharaoh?


Rashi: Because it was Pharaoh 1 who initiated the plan to enslave Yisrael. 2


The plague of Arov too, began with Pharaoh, as the Pasuk records later (See 8:17).


See Shemos, 1:9 (Rashi). This seems to clash with the Midrash that initially, Pharaoh refused to listen to the wishes of the people to enslave Yisrael, and it was only after they deposed him for three months that he relented.
