The King of Upper and Lower Egypt [Wah?]///
Note: Gardiner tentatively restored part of the royal name with the sign wah, although he notes it might also have been the sign kha. Neither restoration fits the prenomen or the nomen of an 11th Dynasty king, though. The fifth king in this list is Mentuhotep II. Counting back, this line would probably have contained the name of Mentuhotep I.

- Note: The name of Mentuhotep IV is completely
absent from the Canon. The summation only mentions 6 kings instead of 7.
The summation probably mentions 7 years for a king whose name was erased.
