|Pharaoh of Egypt|
- Rahotep was also the name of an Egyptian prince during the fourth dynasty, see Prince Rahotep
Rahotep (or more properly Sekhemrewahkhaw Rahotep) was an Egyptian king who reigned during the Second Intermediate Period, when Egypt was ruled by multiple kings. Kim Ryholt, in his book The Political Situation in Egypt, suggests that Rahotep was the first king of the 17th Dynasty.
Rahotep is well known from a stele found at Koptos reporting the restoration of the temple. Rahotep also "boasts of restorations in temples [he performed] at Abydos and Koptos." Otherwise he is only known from the stela of an official and from the bow of a king's son.
