Sheneh (transliteration: šnḥ) may have been a 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.

Sheneh cannot be linked to any king listed in the Turin Canon. He is merely attested by three scarab-shaped seals of unknown provenance bearing his nomen. Sheneh is comparatively well attested for a 14th Dynasty ruler and Egyptologist Kim Ryholt consequently proposes that he may be identifiable with either Sehebre or Merdjefare, since they are Turin Canon rulers attested to the 14th Dynasty with relatively longer reigns.[1]
