Sewadjkare Hori (also known as Hori II) was a pharaoh of the late 13th dynasty, possibly the thirty-sixth king of this dynasty.[2] He reigned over Middle and Upper Egypt for 5 years either during the early or mid-17th century, from 1669 until 1664 BC[1] or from 1648 until 1643 BC.[3]


Sewadjkare Hori is only known for certain from the Turin canon, row 8, column 7 (Gardiner, von Beckerath: row 7, column 7). The Turin canon provides the prenomen Sewadjkare and nomen Hori for this king. Jürgen von Beckerath assigns to him a stone fragment from El-Tod inscribed with the prenomen "Sewadj[...]re". However, since there are two other rulers from the second intermediate period bearing the same prenomen, this identification remains conjectural.[4]


Sewadjkare Hori should not be confused with Sewadjkare, a pharaoh of the early 13th dynasty, and with another Sewadjkare from the mid 14th dynasty. Both of these pharaohs enjoyed shorter reigns than Sewadjkare Hori.[1]
