Kings of Egypt of which too little is known to be able to place them into a dynasty with any certainty. Some have been considered as rulers by earlier Egyptologists, but their rule has now been proved to have been false.

This includes (but is not limited to) rulers where new evidence has disproved their rule, such as mistaken identity etc.
