People - Ancient Egypt: Neferkauhor

of centralized government, with many kings having overlapping reigns. Montuhotep established order from his capital
Neferkauhor in Wikipedia
Neferkauhor was an eighth dynasty king of ancient Egypt during the First Intermediate Period.
His name is attested on the Abydos King List as the penultimate king of the Old kingdom, but
not on the Turin Canon where his name is lost in a lacunae--although his reign length is
preserved here. Neferkauhor is by far the most well attested of all early First Intermediate
Period kings, because he left behind the Koptos Decree stela which names Shemay as his Vizier
in Upper Egypt. The German scholar Jürgen von Beckerath equates him with the second last 8th
dynasty ruler given in the Old Kingdom who is assigned a brief reign length of 2 years, 1
month and 1 day.
