Meribre (transliteration: mr-ỉb-rꜤ, meaning: "Beloved by the Heart of Re") was an ancient Egyptian Pharaoh during the Second Intermediate Period. Egyptologist Jürgen von Beckerath places Meribre in the 16th Dynasty as a vassal of the Hyksos.[1] However, this is now more commonly believed to have been a Theban dynasty.[2] Alternatively, Meribre might belong to the Canaanite 14th Dynasty. His throne name does not appear in the Turin King List, but it could potentially have originally featured in one of the gaps or already lost when the document was written. Meribre is merely known from scarab-seals.
