Sneferu Net Worth

Sneferu was born in Ancient Egypt, Egyptian, is King of Egypt. Sneferu was the founder and the first king of the Fourth Dynasty of ancient Egypt during the Old Kingdom. Also known under his Hellenized name Soris, he played a major role in the design and construction of the pyramids in Ancient Egypt. Sneferu’s reign marked the climax of the Old Kingdom when its royal power reached a zenith under the Fourth Dynasty. He is credited to have introduced major technical innovations in the construction of pyramids and the three major pyramids he built were far larger than those constructed by his predecessors and also differed in their style. The details regarding Sneferu’s parentage are obscure. It is generally believed that he was one of the sons of his predecessor, Huni, and one of his lesser wives or concubines, Meresankh I. He later on married Hetepheres I, who would have been at least his half sister, probably by a more senior queen, and this strengthened his claim to the throne. After ascending to the throne Sneferu probably undertook extensive expeditions southward into Nubia, and westward into the Sinai. But he became best known for the designing and construction of pyramids, and is credited with at least one of a series of "regional" or provincial pyramids, at Seila

Famous Quotes:

It is apparent that with the interior design of the Bent Pyramid the architect was groping and experimenting, taking maximum advantage of the huge volume of the monument (50 million cubic feet), the largest pyramid constructed to that date.

Biography/Timeline

1924

The 24-year Turin Canon figure for Sneferu's reign is considered today to be an underestimate since this king's highest-known date is an inscription discovered at the Red Pyramid of Dahshur and mentioning Sneferu's 24th cattle count, corresponding to at least 24 full years. Snefru, however, was known to have a minimum of at least three years after the cattle count dates: his years after the 10th, the 13th and the 18th count are attested at his Meidum pyramid. This would mean that Sneferu ruled Egypt a minimum of 27 full years.

However, in the Palermo Stone, recto 6 at the bottom of the fragment shows the year of the 7th count of Sneferu while recto 7 on the same following row shows the year of the 8th count of Sneferu. Significantly, there is a previous mostly intact column for Sneferu in recto 5 which also mentions events in this king's reign in a specific year but does not mention the previous (6th) year. This column must, therefore, be dated to the year after the 6th count of Sneferu. Hence, Sneferu's reign would be a minimum of 28 years. Since there are many periods in Snefru's reigns for which Egyptologists have few dates—only the years of the 2nd, 7th, 8th, 12th, 13th, 14th, 15th, 16th, 17th, 18th, 23rd and 24th count are known for Sneferu before one considers the years after his cattle counts—this pharaoh is most likely to have had a reign in excess of 30 years to manage to build three pyramids in his long rule but not 48 years since the cattle count was not regularly biannual during his kingship. (There are fewer years after the count dates known for Sneferu compared to year of the count or census dates.)
