Netjeraperef (netjer = "god") was an Egyptian prince, a son of pharaoh Sneferu. He was buried in tomb II/I at Dashur, and his title was King's son. He was a half-brother of pharaoh Khufu.[1]

Netjeraperef is known from a round-topped stela. The stela refers to Kha Sneferu khenty, which is the name of one of Sneferu's pyramids. Netjeraperef was a priest of Sneferu's pyramid, and an overseer of inspectors in the several nomes of Upper Egypt.[2][3]
