Malonaqen Sekhemkare [1]
in hieroglyphs

Malonaqen was a Meroitic king who probably governed in the first half of the 6th century BC. His prenomen was "Sekhemkare."

He is thought to be the son of king Aramatle-qo and queen Amanitakaye, although this is based merely on assumptions. His queen consort is thought to be Tagtal, who was buried at Nuri (Nu. 45).[1]


He is well known from his pyramid (Nu.5) at Nuri as well as by a votive cartouche from Kawa and on blocks (from temple M 242, 294) and other objects in Meroë.[2]
