Snefru

(reigned c. 2615–2592 BC)
   First king of Dynasty 4 of unknown origin. His mother, Meresankh I, bore the title of queen mother but not queen, so his father is unlikely to have been Huni, last ruler of the previous dynasty. He built possibly three pyramids, two at Dahshur and possibly one at Meidum. Snefru undertook campaigns in Nubia and had trade relations with Lebanon. He was remembered in the later literature as a wise and just monarch. He was succeeded by Khufu, his son by his chief queen, Hetepheres.
   See also Nefermaat; Rahotep.
