Usermaatre-Meryamun Shoshenq VI (transliteration: ššnq), also known as Sheshonk, was a pharaoh of the Twenty-third Dynasty during the Third Intermediate Period. He ruled over Upper Egypt from Thebes and had to deal with Osorkon, a rival claimant to his throne. Shoshenq VI was allied with Padibastet II, a rival king in Lower Egypt to Shoshenq III of the Twenty-second Dynasty, indicating an increasing dynastic quarrel at the time.
