Neferka was an ancient Egyptian pharaoh of the Sixth Dynasty, who briefly reigned around 2200 BC.

A king with the name Neferka, written in the papyrus as Neferka-khered appears in the Turin King List between king Netjerkare Siptah and a king Nefer.[1] Neferka and Nefer are most likely writing errors in the papyrus. Several scholars regard Neferka as mistake for Neferkare and identify him with Neferkare Pepiseneb.[2] Other identify him with Menkare.
