The newly discovered ''lost pyramid'' of Menkauher. Saqqara, Egypt.

King of Ancient Egypt, 7th ruler of the 5th Dynasty, ruling 2421-2414 BCE, 7 years.
He constructed a sun temple for Re, becoming the last king to follow this rather new tradition.
There has never been discovered any pyramid built for him, but records indicate that it was either built at Saqqara or Dahshur.
He was preceded by Nyuserre, and succeeded by Djedkare.
