Herodotus was born about 490 BCE at Halicarnassos and died in Italy in the late 420's. He traveled to Asia and northern Africa. The second volume of his Histories describes Egypt's geography, people and relates stories about a number of pharaohs. While many of his stories might only be tales, it still contain many names of the pharaohs.
As a chronology it is almost worthless. For instance, he placed the pyramid builders of the Old Kingdom after the New Kingdom. Some of the named pharaohs are clearly compounded from more than one pharaoh. The end result is, in most cases, unreliable and hold very little historic credibility.
After Mina came three hundred and thirty kings, whose names the priests recited from a papyrus roll. In all these many generations there were eighteen Ethiopian kings, and one queen, native to the country; the rest were all Egyptian men.Herodotus, book II, chapter 100.1
