Intef III in Wikipedia
Intef III was a Pharaoh in Egypt of the Eleventh Dynasty during the First Intermediate Period. His
Horus name was Nakjtnebtepnefer, which translates to "Horus, the victorious one, Lord of the good
beginning". He was buried in a saff-tomb at el-Tarif (Thebes), and little is known about his deeds.
Intef III successfully defended the territory that Intef II had won and held territory as far as the
seventeenth nome of Upper Egypt. He restored a ruined tomb of a deified prince named Hekayeb at
Aswan. After a short and peaceful 8 year reign, he was succeeded by his son Mentuhotep II. Intef
III was buried in a saff (row) tomb in el Tarif (near Thebes) next to Intef I and Intef II, and near
Deir el-Bahri (the site of Montuhotep II's Mortuary Temple).
