Wazner, also Wazenez or Wadjenedj (or possibly Wenegbu?), could be a Predynastic Egyptian king who ruled in the Nile Delta around or earlier than 3100 BC.[1] He is only known from the Palermo Stone, a royal annal dating to the Fifth Dynasty (c. 2500–c. 2350 BC), where he appears among a small number of kings of Lower Egypt. As there is no other evidence of him, he may be a mythical king preserved through oral tradition,[2] or may even be completely fictitious.[3][4]
