Sewadjkare III (transliteration: s-wꜢḏ-kꜢ-rꜤ, meaning: "He whom the Soul of Re causes to Flourish") was an ancient Egyptian Pharaoh of the Fourteenth Dynasty during the Second Intermediate Period. He was of Canaanite origin and ruled from Avaris over the eastern Nile Delta in Lower Egypt. Sewadjkare is merely known by his preserved throne name in the Turin King List (Col 8. Line 6 as per Gardiner).[2] This makes him either the seventh[3] or eleventh[1][4] ruler of the dynasty. His reign length is recorded as 1 year, while the amount of months and days are lost.[1]
