Semenkhkare (about 1337-1334 BC)
King of the Eighteenth Dynasty. Some scholars identify this ruler as Nefertiti, wife of Akhenaten, because the throne-name Ankhkheperure occurs first with a nomen Neferneferuaten, and that had regularly been part of the name of Nefertiti; other scholars consider Semenkhkare to be a younger brother of Tutankhamun, with a very short reign. The evidence is inconclusive.
