Egyptian Pharaoh. He ruled for eleven years between 2528 BC and 2520 BC. He reigned during Egypt's Fourth Dynasty and was the first Pharaoh to adopt the title "Son of Ra", reflection of the increasing popularity of that deity. Recently it has been suggested that he may have ordered the construction of the great Sphinx at Giza, although his own pyramid was built at Abu Rawash, eight kilometres north of the Giza plateau. His pyramid was built on a natural rock outcrop which forms 45% of its core. A sphinx, built for his wife at his pyramid complex, is believed to be the oldest in Egypt.
