Intef VII in hieroglyphs

The sixth pharaoh of the Seventeenth Dynasty, a.k.a. Sekhemra Heruhirmaat Intef

Ruled Upper Egypt from Thebes during the late Second Intermediate Period. The short reign suggests that he met a violent end, perhaps even the final spark that started the war with the Fifteenth Dynasty.
