Also known as: Menkare
Dynasty VIII

Menkara's name is only securely attested on Seti I's Abydos king list (number 41,) and the Turin papyrus unfortunately has a notation of a lacuna where his name would have been found. The tomb of queen Neit in at Saqqara has the queen in front of a damaged cartouche that reads ..kara, with enough space to have helf the Men sign.
