Menkaure (transliteration: mn-kꜢw-rꜤ, meaning: "Established are the Souls of Re"), or Hellenized as Mykerinos (Koine Greek: Μυκερῖνος), was a Pharaoh of the Fourth Dynasty during the Old Kingdom of ancient Egypt. According to Manetho, he was the throne successor of king Bikheris, but according to archaeological evidence, he was almost certainly the successor of Khafre.
