King Djer | Kings of Egypt

Khant Dujar is a pharaoh of the first Egyptian family and is unknown; he ruled around 3050 B.C. He is believed to have campaigned in the country of Nubia and Libya and his tomb is located at Abydos, next to the tomb of his wife, Meredith, who is believed to have assumed power when his son was a minor.

King Djer | Kings of Egypt

The Palermo Stone lists the first 10 years of Djer’s reign, which lasted 57years as a king. If the reconstruction of the Annals Stone based on its different fragments is correct, the reign of Djer may have lasted up to 41 years. Djer was buried in a fairly elaborate tomb at Umm el-Qa’ab.

Of the events of Djer's reign, only a few facts that are quite unrelated to each other are known. The Palermo Stone reports of a "massacre of the Setju", a term that indicates the Asians, a stele discovered in Gebel Sheikh Suleiman, in Nubia, and now preserved in the museum of Khartoum, attesting to a raid while other sources report an expedition in Sinai.

Like the other rulers of the first dynasty, he was buried in the necropolis of Umm el-Qa'ab near Abydos. Starting from the 18th dynasty, his tomb was worshiped as Osiris' tomb.
