Djedkare Shabataka (transliteration: šꜢ-bꜢ-tꜢ-kꜢ), or Shebitku, is an ancient Egyptian Pharaoh of the Twenty-fifth Dynasty during the Third Intermediate Period. He was of Nubian origin and ruled from Napata over Kush and most of Egypt. Shabataka actively sought to consolidate his authority in Lower Egypt, which resulted in his victory over Bakenrenef of Sais and the collapse of the Twenty-fourth Dynasty.
