People - Ancient Egypt: Neferkauhor
FIRST INTERMEDIATE PERIOD 7th and 8th Dynasties (2150 - 2135) This was a very troubled time. There was a breakdown of centralized government, with many kings having overlapping reigns. Montuhotep established order from his capital at Thebes.

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.[1]
