Senakhtenra

Also known as: Senakhtenre Tao in older texts Dynasty XVII

For a long time there were no contemporary attestations of this pharaoh, so it was proposed that his birth name was Tao, like his son, as two pharaohs with that name are mentioned in the Abbott papyrus. This was disproved in 2012 when his Horus and birth names were discovered at Karnak.
