Shenshek (transliteration: šnšk) may have been a Pharaoh of the Fourteenth Dynasty during the Second Intermediate Period.[1] He was of Canaanite origin and ruled from Avaris over the eastern Nile Delta in Lower Egypt.

Shenshek cannot be linked to any king listed in the Turin Canon. He is merely attested by a single scarab-shaped seal discovered at Tell el-Dab'a bearing his nomen. Egyptologist Manfred Bietak views the inscribed name as a potential variant of Sheshi.
