Also known as: Neferkare
Dynasty III

The last king of the second dynasty on the Abydos king list is Neferkara, but the name is absent on the other New Kingdom king lists. There is no archaeological evidence for this name, and the name was likely a constructed by later scribes. Another possibility is that it belonged to the fourth dynasty founder Snoferu's predecessor, Huni. It is unclear under which name Africanus could have listed him in Manetho's king list of the third dynasty.
