Sekhemre-Heruhirmaat Intef VII was a Pharaoh of the Seventeenth Dynasty during the Second Intermediate Period, when Egypt was divided between the Theban-based Seventeenth Dynasty in Upper Egypt and the Avaris-based Fifteenth Dynasty of the Hyksos, who controlled Lower and part of Middle Egypt.

Intef VII ruled from Thebes as a contemporary ruler to the Hyksos king Apepi in the north.

Intef VII was buried in a tomb situated at the Dra' Abu el-Naga' Necropolis. His only clear attestation is his coffin – Louvre E 3020 – now in France.[1]
