Menkauhor was the seventh king of the 5th Dynasty.
He ruled Ancient Egypt from 2396 till 2388 BC, but never
achieved the level of fame that the rest of the kings in
his dynasty did. He built a pyramid in Dahshur, but only
its ruins remain. There is a small alabaster statue of
Menkauhor located in the Egyptian museum in Cairo. He is
reputed as having sent his troops to Sinai in order to
acquire materials for the construction of his tomb.
