King Huni | Third Dynasty Kings of Egypt



Some archaeological references indicate that King "Honi" was the one who began to build the pyramid of Meidum - located in the Meidum region near Memphis on the west bank of the Nile River in Beni Suef, about 100 km south of Cairo - but he died without completing its construction, so King Senefru completed it.


King Huni also had a girl called Hetepheres who would become the wife of her half-brother, Snefru. They had Cheops, Khufu who was the creator of the Great Pyramid. King Huni was called ( the Smiter) is perhaps because of his successful military campaigns against the enemies of Egypt. During early Egyptian history, the traveling Bedouin tribes were fiercely fought by the ancient Egyptians in order to keep control of the quarries and mines in the desert areas of the Sinai, Canaan, Syria, and Arabia.

The Stone Quarries were of great importance to the king enabling the extraction of stone building materials required for his extensive building projects. Several small, pyramid-shaped, monuments have been associated with this king. They do not contain internal chambers, so they are not tombs. They are believed to act as boundary markers of land for the king, or perhaps cenotaphs dedicated to close members of his family. 

King Huni erected a brick pyramidal tomb at Abu Rawash (8 km north of Giza). This layered brick pyramid is very small and badly damaged. The Mud bricks used for its construction were unusual for the third Dynasty who was using stone for their monuments built at this time.
