Sahura

Also known as: Sahure
Dynasty V

Sahura was the second ruler of the fifth dynasty, succeeding his father Userkaf. His name can be found on all three inscribed New Kingdom king lists. The name is lost on the Turin king list, but can be inferred to have been present on 4.18 where it preserves a 12 year reign.
