Khendjer

 Dynasty XIII

Khendjer is the earliest known Semitic king of a native Egyptian dynasty and his name has been interpreted as the foreign name Hnzr and equated with the Semitic personal name for "boar". His name is present in the Turin Canon, and only a few other finds contain his name. He had a small pyramid built at Saqqara.
