Hudjefa I

 Dynasty II

The name Hudjefa appears in the Saqqara and Turin king lists. Both describe Hudjefa as the immediate successor of Neferkasokar and the predecessor of Khasekhemwy. Hudjefa is not a proper name, but instead describes that the original name was unreadable to the scribe compiling the list.
