Egypt: Rulers, Kings and Pharaohs of Ancient Egypt: Shepseskaf


2472-2467 B.C.

4th Dynasty

Shepseskaf was the sixth king of the 4th Dynasty. He ruled ancient Egypt from 2472 BC until 2467 BC. Shepseskaf was in power through a very difficult political period, during which there were many confrontations with various priests. Many Nomes desired independence and rebelled against Shepseskaf's authority. He completed his predecessors' monuments, but some records indicate that he was not descended from a royal line. His tomb is in South Saqqara.
