But that's entirely in line with his own teachings.

There are always two Sith.
The master, embodying power.
The apprentice yearning for that power.
When there's nothing more to gain from the master the apprentice challenges them.
The strongest survives and leads the Order.

If your apprentice lets you take over their body they clearly weren't worthy of replacing you.

The Sith are all about strength and power after all.
As long as you're the strongest, most powerful Sith you are the boss.

If anyone did it wrong then Palpatine.
Murdering your master in his sleep is not the true way.
