|Pharaoh of Egypt|
|Reign||short, ca. 1735 BC, 13th Dynasty|
|Monuments||Chapel in Abydos|
He appears in the Turin King List as Sobekhotep and is otherwise mainly known from reliefs coming from a chapel set up in Abydos and from a fragment of a column. His reign was most likely only very short.
The name of Khaankhre Sobekhotep (I) appears in an inscription from the Amherst collection. The inscription is part of a granite statue pedestal. The piece was acquired in 1982 by the British museum (BM 69497).
Ryholt mentions that Sobekhotep I may be identical with Sobekhotep II. Sobekhotep II is only mentioned as Sobekhotep in the Turin King List. Others, like Dodson, consider Khaahnkhre Sobekhotep II and Sekhemre Khutawy Sobekhotep I to be two different rulers from the 13th dynasty, while Bierbrier lists Khaahnkhre Sobekhotep I and Sekhemre Khutawy Sobekhotep II.
