Shemsu (transliteration: šmsw) 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. Shemsu is merely known by his preserved name in the Turin King List (Col 9. Line 20 as per Gardiner).[1] His reign length has not been preserved.
