Mersekhemre Neferhotep II (transliteration: nfr-ḥtp, meaning: "Perfect in Peace") was an ancient Egyptian Pharaoh of the 13th Dynasty during the Second Intermediate Period. According to Von Beckerath he may be identical to Mersekhemre Ined.[2] In contrast, Kim Ryholt sees in these documents the references to two distinct rulers with the same official throne name, as for example in the case of Merhotepre for both Sobekhotep V and Ini II. Rather, Ryholt identifies Neferhotep II with a king "Mer…re" on column 8 row 16 of the Turin canon, which would place Neferhotep II late in the dynasty.[1]
