Seth-Peribsen
Birth: unknown, Egypt
Death: unknown, Egypt

Egyptian Pharaoh. He was the fourth king of Egypt's Second Dynasty, reigning for seventeen years from approximately 2700 BC. His original name was Sekhemib, meaning "Powerful in Heart" but he soon changed this to Seth-Peribsen, meaning "Seth-Hope of all Hearts" as a demonstration of his allegiance to the god Seth. His reign coincided with a period of conflict between Upper and Lower Egypt which saw the god Seth gaining in influence as a rival to Horus. It is believed that his reign may have been dominated by some form of religious conflict between the followers of the two gods, although some historians consider that his name change represented an attempt to reconcile the two factions. He held power as far South as the Elephantine, where a temple was later dedicated to Seth. He was buried in a mud brick tomb at Abydos, where a granite funerary stele also bears his name. (bio by: js)
