Also known as: Nebkare
Dynasty III

The name Nebkara is only found on the Saqqara king list, and since cartouches was still not in use by this time, the name is likely a constructed name by later scribes. No archaeological records of a king Nebkara exist, so it is impossible to connect the name with a pharaoh.
