Egyptian Pharaoh. He reigned for approximately twenty-five years from 2416 BC until 2392 BC. During his reign he carried out many important building projects, including a pyramid complex for himself and two smaller ones for his wives. He also completed the unfinished tombs of his predecessors, Neferirkare Kakai, Khentkhaus II and Neferefra, and finished Neferefra's sun temple at Abu Gurab. Contemporary documents suggest that he ordered military expeditions to Libya and also into Asia. His pyramid at Abusir stood approximately fifty-two meters high, and used one hundred and twelve thousand cubic meters of stone in its construction.
