Shepseskare


Shephseskare

2426 - 2419 B.C.

5th Dynasty

Little to nothing is known about Shepseskare, except that he ruled between Neferirkare and Neferefre. His relationship to the other kings of the 5th Dynasty is not known. According to the Turin King-list, he ruled for 7 years. Some seal impressions dated to his reign have been found at Abusir, and these are about the only witnesses of Shepseskare's reign. It is not known whether he built a pyramid or a solar-temple, although the unfinished pyramid located at Abusir between the pyramid of Sahure and the solar-temple of Userkaf, has, by some, been credited to him.
