People - Ancient Egypt: Inyotef III
(Nakhtnebtepnefer) FIRST INTERMEDIATE PERIOD Merikare 11th Dynasty (2069-2060) 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.

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[3]. 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).

He defended the city of Abydos from many Herakleopolitan assaults. Inyotef's name is inscribed in the mountains of Silsileh. Queen Aoh was his main wife and the mother of his heir Montuhotep II. Inyotef's daughter Neferu married his heir. The king had a second queen in his reign called Henite.
