Title: Semenre  
Author: World Heritage Encyclopedia
Language: English
Subject: Sixteenth Dynasty of Egypt, Mekh, Setut, Neferkare VIII, Sewadjkare III
Publisher: World Heritage Encyclopedia


Semenre is a poorly attested Theban king during the Second Intermediate Period of Egypt who succeeded the equally obscure Nebiriau II. He reigned from 1601 BC to 1600 BC (Kim Ryholt) or ca. 1580 BC (Franke) and belonged to the 16th dynasty (Ryholt) or the 17th dynasty (Franke).

Semenre was succeeded by Seuserenre Bebiankh who left behind more traces of building projects and mining activity in his reign than most kings of this dynasty with the exception of Djehuti. His prenomen "Semenre" means "He who is established by Ra". Semenre is listed on the Turin Canon (11.7). His sole contemporary attestation is an axe inscribed with his prenomen, now in the Petrie Museum, London.[1]
