Nikare II (transliteration: n-kꜢ-rꜤ, meaning: "Belonging to the Soul of Re") was an ancient Egyptian Pharaoh during the Second Intermediate Period. Egyptologist Jürgen von Beckerath places Nikare II 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, Nikare II 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. Nikare II is merely attested by some scarab-seals belonging to the British Museum,[3] the Petrie Museum, and to the Fraser collection.[4]
