Wegaf in Wikipedia
Khutawyre Wegaf (or Ugaf) was an Egyptian king of the 13th Dynasty who is known from several sources, including a stelae and
statues. There is a general known from a scarab with the same name (Wegaf) who is perhaps identical with this king.
A king with the name Khutawyre appears in the Turin King List as first ruler of the 13th Dynasty. However, some researchers
especially Kim Ryholt argue that the writer of the King list confused the name Khutawre with the name Sekhemre-Khutawy and
they place Wegaf in the middle of the 13th Dynasty. Sekhemre Khutawy is regarded by Kim Ryholt as the son of Amenemhet IV but
this idea is not currently accepted by most Egyptologists.
