Neferirkare in Wikipedia
Neferirkare was an Eighth dynasty king of ancient Egypt during
the First Intermediate Period. His name is only clearly
attested in the Abydos King List but it is assumed that the
reign length figure for the last 8th dynasty king belongs to
him in the Turin Canon. He is listed in line 56 of the Abydos
King List as the last ruler of this dynasty prior to the
collapse of the Old Kingdom. Neferirkare, assuming he was
the last king of this dynasty, is given a reign length of one
and-a-half years in the Turin Canon. He was possibly
overthrown by the first king of the Ninth Dynasty, Meribre
Khety I, of Herakleopolis or by the onset of low Nile floods
and mass famine and chaos which engulfed Egypt following the
start of the First Intermediate Period.
