Intef VI


Intef VI

Sekhemrewepmaat Intef VI (or Antef VI) was an Egyptian king of the Seventeenth dynasty of Egypt, who lived during the Second Intermediate Period, when Egypt was ruled by multiple kings.

He ruled from Thebes, and was probably buried in a tomb in the necropolis. His royal coffin, Louvre E 3019, was discovered in the 19th century and found to preserve an inscription which reveals that this king's brother Nebkheperre Antef VII buried – and thus succeeded – him. [ Kim Ryholt, The Political Situation in Egypt during the Second Intermediate Period, CNI Publications, Copenhagen: Museum Tusculanum Press, 1997, p.270] Both Intef VI and Intef VII were sons of a king called Sobekemsaf, most probably Sobekemsaf I based on an inscription from a door jamb from a 17th dynasty temple at Gebel Antef. [Ryholt, op. cit., p.270] While his own tomb has not been located, it was likely located in the area of Dra' Abu el-Naga' where the pyramid tomb of his brother Intef VII was found in 2001.
