Publisher: World Heritage Encyclopedia


Nedjemibre was an ephemeral Egyptian pharaoh of the 13th Dynasty of Egypt during the Second Intermediate Period reigning c. 1780 BC[1] or 1736 BC.[2]

According to egyptologists Kim Ryholt and Darell Baker he was the twelfth pharaoh of the dynasty,[1][4] while Detlef Franke and Jürgen von Beckerath see him as the eleventh ruler.[5][6][7][8]

Nedjemibre is known solely from the Turin canon, a king list compiled in the early Ramesside period.[4] The canon gives his name on the 7th column, line 14 (Gardiner entry 6.14 [9]) and credits him with a very short reign of "7 months and [lost days]".[1][4] The fact that Nedjemibre's successor, Khaankhre Sobekhotep, is well attested and never mentions his parentage led Ryholt to propose that Khaankhre Sobekhotep was not of royal birth and usurped the throne at the expense of Nedjemibre.[1]
