v · d · e

The ninth dynasty of ancient Egypt (notated Dynasty IX) is often combined with Dynasties VII, VIII, X and XI (Thebes only) under the group title First Intermediate Period. Dynasties IX and X date approximately from 2160 to 2025 BC.[1]

Rulers

Known rulers, in the History of Egypt, for Dynasty IX[2] are as follows (dates are uncertain):

Dynasty IX
Name Comments
Wakhare Khety I -
Merykare I -
Neferkare III -
Wankhare Khety II -

Dynasty IX was founded at Herakleopolis Magna, and Dynasty X continued there. At this time Egypt was not unified, and there is some overlap between these and other local dynasties. The Turin Canon lists eighteen kings for this royal line, but their names are damaged, unidentifiable, or lost.[3]
