Sanakhte


Sanakhte
(reigned c. 2640–2638 BC)
   Horus name of a king of Dynasty 3 whose personal name is uncertain, possibly Nebka. He is known from a relief from Sinai, but his order in the dynasty is unclear. He is generally stated to be the first king, but it is probable that he was a later successor rather than a predecessor of Djoser.
