Sobekneferu was the first known female Pharaoh for which we have proof. Up to five other women are believed to have ruled in the First Dynasty and a Nitocris may have ruled in the Sixth Dynasty. Sobekneferu was the daughter of Amenemhat III and possibly the sister of Amenemhat IV. Sobekneferu was the last ruler of the 12th Dynasty, which she began to rule after Amenemhat IV died without an heir. She ruled for 3 years, 10 months, and 24 days in the 19th century BC.
