Sekhemre-Shedwaset (transliteration: sḫm-rꜥ šd-wꜣs.t, meaning: "Might of Re, Rescuer of Thebes") is the prenomen of possibly a Pharaoh of the Sixteenth Dynasty during the Second Intermediate Period. He ruled over parts of Upper Egypt.

Sekhemre-Shedwaset is merely attested in the Turin King List, where he appears as the successor of Bebiankh.[2]

It has been suggested, but not universally accepted, that Sekhemre-Shedwaset may be identical to Sekhemre-Shedtawy Sobekemsaf II, since their throne names are similar.[3]
