    Bebiankh in Wikipedia Seuserenre Bebiankh was a native Ancient Egyptian king of the 16th Theban dynasty during the Second Intermediate Period and the successor of king Semenre. He is assigned a reign of 12 years in the Turin Canon.[1] Seuserenre is principally known by a stela found at Gebel Zeit that attests to mining activity conducted in this area by the Red Sea during his reign and preserves his royal nomen Bebiankh.[2] He is also known to have an extension to the Temple of Medamud.[3] He was succeeded by a poorly known king named Sekhemre Shedwast. The German Egyptologist Jürgen von Beckerath has attributed an anonymous Year 11 Sothic inscription from Gebel Tjauti Rock inscription No.11-which has been dated to the period around 1593-1590 BC deep within the Second Intermediate Period-to king Seuserenre.[4][5] If correct, this would place Seuserenre's reign in the period from 1603 or 1600 BC to 1591 or 1588 BC. His prenomen, Seuserenre, means "The One Whom Re Causes to be Strong."[6]
