Sekhemre-Shedtawy Sobekemsaf II was the third Pharaoh of the Seventeenth Dynasty during the Second Intermediate Period, when Egypt was divided between the Theban-based Seventeenth Dynasty in Upper Egypt and the Avaris-based Fifteenth Dynasty of the Hyksos, who controlled Lower Egypt and part of Middle Egypt.

Sobekemsaf II's successors, Intef V and Intef VI, were probably his sons.[1]

Sobekemsaf II ruled from Thebes as a contemporary ruler to the Hyksos king Apepi in the north.
