Who's Who of Ancient Egypt - Egyptian people, queens and family: Kagemni


3rd and 4th Dynasties

Kagemni was possibly two different individuals that lived during the reigns of Huni and Snofru. One Kagemni was a writer that wrote about social behavior and correct attitudes toward rulers and fellow human beings. A copy of this text was found in the Papyrus Prisse. Possibly the same Kagemni or another person was an overseer of the tomb of Huni's predecessor, Khaba. This Kagemni has been reported to have been the vizier for Snofru as well.
