Seuserenre Khyan was a Hyksos Pharaoh of the Fifteenth Dynasty during the Second Intermediate Period, when Egypt was divided between the Theban-based Sixteenth Dynasty in Upper Egypt[1] and the Avaris-based Fifteenth Dynasty of the Hyksos, who controlled Lower and part of Middle Egypt.

Khyan ruled from Avaris in the Nile Delta as a contemporary ruler to the Theban Sixteenth Dynasty in the south. Khyan even briefly conquered Thebes c. 1600 BC, sacking the city, after which it was reconquered by the newly established Seventeenth Dynasty.[1]
