Nikaure was an ancient Egyptian prince and vizier during the 4th dynasty. His titles include king's eldest son of his body (sA-nswt n Xt=f), as well as chief justice and vizier (smsw tAjtj sAb TAtj).
In Nikaure's tomb a will outlining his legacy is preserved. The will is dated to the "year of the twelfth occurrence of the numbering of large and small cattle (year 24 of Khafre). Nikaure leaves property to his wife Nikanebti, his son Nikaure, his daughter Hetepheres, and his son Ka-en-nebti-wer. The property that would have gone to a (presumably) deceased daughter reverts to Nikaure's wife Nikanebti.
