Shepseskara Netjeruser

Also known as: Shepseskare
Dynasty V

Shepseskara is a very obscure king, who probably only ruled for a short time, maybe even only a couple months. He was likely a member of the royal family, but in which capacity is unknown. The Turin papyrus is of little help as the names of the relevant kings are missing, in fact, his name is only present on the Saqqara king list. He is included on Manetho's king list as Sisires
