Niuserra Ini

Also known as: Niuserre
Dynasty V

When Neferefra died unexpectedly, his brother Niuserra was set to succeed him, but as he was still only a child, Shepseskara managed to usurp the throne for a year or so, before he in turn was ousted and the rightful king was put on the throne. Niuserra is included on Manetho's king list as Rathures, which is the Greek transcription of his name.
