Sahure, Neferirkare and Raneferef.
The long reign of Sahure now draws to a close, and his son Neferirkare Kakai takes the throne.
The wife of Neferirkare, Khentykaus II, wields enormous influence from her position of power.
But...with the Sun Temples playing a major religious role in this period, how much do they clash with the king's authority?
We investigate these institutions and their impact.
