    Who is Nitocris?

    Nitocris has been claimed to have been the last pharaoh of the Sixth Dynasty. Her name is found in the Histories of Herodotus and writings of Manetho, but her historicity is questionable. She might have been an interregnum queen. If she is in fact a historical person, then she may be the sister of Merenre Nemtyemsaf II and the daughter of Pepi II and Queen Neith.
