Sekhemre Shedwast

Sekhemre Shedwast (Sekhemreshedwaset) was a native Ancient Egyptian king of the 16th Theban dynasty during the Second Intermediate Period and the successor of king Bebiankh.[1]

It has been suggested, but not currently accepted, that Sekhemre Shedwast may be identical to Sekhemre-shedtawi Sobekemsaf II--since their royal names differ. If so, he may have been married to Queen Nubkhaes II and they may have had a son named Sekhemre-Wepmaat Intef.[2]

The royal name Sekhemre Shedwaset translates literally as "the Might of Re which rescues Thebes.'[3]
