Huni
Birth: unknown, Egypt
Death: unknown, Egypt

Egyptian Pharaoh. He was the last King of Egypt's Third Dynasty. It is believed that he served as a high official under the Pharaoh Djoser before coming to power, probably quite late in life, in 2637 BC. He reigned for twenty four years and built a great fortress on the island of Elephantine in order to secure Egypt's southern borders. He is most famous today as the likely builder of the step pyramid at Meidum, the distinctive shape of which is due to the collapse of the outer layers. He died in 2613 BC, leaving his pyramid to be completed by his successor, Sneferu. (bio by: js)
