Khasekhemwy

(reigned c. 2710 BC)
   Final ruler of Dynasty 2. Probably identical with a King Khasekhem attested on contemporary monuments. He appears to have ended the religious conflict between the supporters of Horus and Seth by adopting both gods as part of the serekh of the royal titulary. His statues found at Hierakonpolis represent the king as victorious over northern enemies in Lower Egypt. He built an elaborate tomb at Abydos and a massive palace structure that may have served as a mortuary temple.
