The Fourteenth Dynasty of Ancient Egypt

Dates: 1805-1650 BC.

The Fourteenth Dynasty was a series of foreign Canaanite kings reigning over Lower Egypt concurrently with the Thirteenth and Fifteenth Dynasties. The historical chronology is murky at best and quite uncertain. The duration of the dynasty varies depending on which source is consulted.
