Sedjefakare Kay Amenemhat VII was an Egyptian king of the 13th dynasty, known from the Turin King List, and several other objects, including six cylinder seals,[2] one bark stand from Medamud[3] and two scarab seals.[4] His name appears as graffito in the tomb of queen Khuit at Saqqara. Ryholt assigns him without further evidence a reign of 6–7 years.[5]
