Semqen was the third ruler of the Hyksos Sixteenth Dynasty of Egypt.

Semqen and Anat-her are thought to be rulers who come from the very early part of the Sixteenth dynasty of Egypt.[2] This ruler is only attested by a steatite scarab from Tell el-Yahudiyeh on which he is called Heka-chasut.[1][3]
