The Seventh Dynasty of Ancient Egypt History

The seventh dynasty and tenth dynasty, as well as the eleventh dynasty, are known as the first transitional period. Little is known about the kings of the seventh and eighth dynasties, as it was a period of confusion in the history of Egypt.

Netjerkare Siptah was possibly known as the King of Ancient Egypt in the first transitional period. His name only came on the list of Abydos of the kings as it was reported that he was the successor to King Meren Ra II.

It is possible that there was confusion between the name Netgear Ra and the name of Netocris and it was said in some sources that she was a queen to succeed King Meren Ra the second, but the name of Ptah bearing the king was mentioned, as mentioned in the Turin List. This confusion may have occurred because of the similarity of his book in the hieroglyphic language.
