Intef VI in Wikipedia
Sekhemrewepmaat Intef VI (or Antef VI) was an Egyptian king of
the Seventeenth dynasty of Egypt, who lived during the Second
Intermediate Period, when Egypt was ruled by multiple kings.
He ruled from Thebes, and was probably buried in a tomb in the
necropolis. His royal coffin, Louvre E 3019, was discovered in
the 19th century and found to preserve an inscription which
reveals that this king's brother Nebkheperre Intef VII buried
– and thus succeeded – him. Both Intef VI and Intef VII
were sons of a king called Sobekemsaf, most probably
Sobekemsaf I based on an inscription from a door jamb from a
17th dynasty temple at Gebel Antef. While his own tomb has
not been located, it was likely located in the area of Dra'
Abu el-Naga' where the pyramid tomb of his brother Intef VII
was found in 2001.
