Maatkheperre-Setepenre Shoshenq IIc (transliteration: ššnq), also known as Sheshonk, is a hypothetical Pharaoh of the Twenty-second Dynasty during the Third Intermediate Period. He is merely known from an inscription on a statue of Psusennes II (CG 42192), usurped from Thutmose III. The inscription has generally been regarded as an erroneously written version of Shoshenq I, with the Ma'at-feather in the throne name mistakingly written instead of the intended White Crown symbol. To the contrary, some scholars have supported Maatkheperre's existence, with Gerard Broekman viewing him as the eldest son of Psusennes II.[1]
