Merenre I
Birth: unknown, Egypt
Death: unknown, Egypt

Egyptian pharaoh. His rule dates from approximately 2283 BC until 2278 BC and lasted for between eleven and thirteen years. The most famous surviving image of this pharaoh shows him as a chid alongside his father, Pepi I. Cast in copper, this statue is made from a material very rarely seen in larger scale Egyptian statues. On gaining the throne, he continued his father's policy of exploration in Nubia, and also took steps to strengthen royal power by making Weni the first governor of Upper Egypt. He was buried in a now ruined pyramid which contained a fine set of pyramid texts and a large black basalt sarcophagus. (bio by: js)
