'''Semerkhet''' was the sixth king of [[Ancient Egypt]]'s [[First dynasty of Egypt|First Dynasty]] who ruled around 2950 BC. Although little is known of his reign, Semerkhet seems to have had a difficult time as king judging by the records of [[Manetho]].
 
[[Manetho]] states that there were numerous disasters in Semerkhet's reign but he alleges that this was due to the fact Semerkhet was an [[usurper]] to the throne. Semerkhet deliberately scrubbederased Anedjib's name from numerous artifacts, but Semerket's own name was later omitted from the Saqqara King List. He did, however, manage to build a much larger royal [[tomb]] than [[Anedjib]] despite his short 9 year reign. Semerkhet is only known otherwise known from one or two contemporary artifacts and, more importantly, in the [[Palermo Stone]] Annals.
 
==Reign==
Although the third century BCE Egyptian priest [[Manetho]] records that this king ruled Egypt for eighteen years, and the [[Turin Canon]] (where he is called '''Semsem''') gives him 72 years, these figures are considered less reliable than the 5th dynasty [[Palermo Stone]]. Toby Wilkinson, in his analysis of the Palermo Stone in ''Royal Annals of Ancient Egypt'', specifically notes that Cairo Fragment One [[Register (sculpture)|register]] III of this document gives '''"Semerkhet 8 1/2 years (this figure is certain, since the entire reign is recorded [here]."'''<ref>Toby (Wilkinson, Royal Annals of Ancient Egypt: ppThe Palermo Stone and Its Associated Fragments, (Kegan Paul International), 2000. p.78 & 258)</ref> Semerkhet's royal name, written in a [[serekh]], was also preserved in this section of the document--hence the nine-year reign can only belong to him. Wilkinson concludes that this king had a reign of 9 full or partial years. (<ref>Wilkinson:, ''Royal Annals'', op. cit., p.80)</ref>
 
The only events listed on the Palermo Stone for his short reign seemappear to be religious observances. There is an ivory seal mentioning his name as well as that of Henuka, a dignitary who seems to have ministered to Semerkhet as well as to his successor, [[Qaa]].
 
Semerkhet is buried in Tomb U of the royal [[necropolis]] at [[Umm el-Qa'ab]], near [[Abydos, Egypt|Abydos]]. His name means "Thoughtful Friend."<ref>Peter Clayton, Chronicle of the Pharaohs, Thames & Hudson Ltd., p.16</ref>
 
His name means "Faithful Friend." (Peter Clayton, ''Chronicle of the Pharaohs'').
