Senusret II

Also known as: Senusret II, Senwosret II
Dynasty XII

Senusret II is present on the Abydos and Saqqara king lists, and his name was likely present on the Turin Canon (6.23) where the name unfortunately is lost, only the record of a 19 year reign remain. Despite having the same name, Manetho's Sesostris refers to Senusret II's son and successor, Senusret III, who arguably was the most powerful ruler of the dynasty.
