Baskakeren was a king of Kush (about 400 BC). He was likely a son of King Malewiebamani and the younger brother of King Amanineteyerike.[1] He succeeded King Amanineteyerike to the throne.[2]

Baskakeren is so far only known from his small pyramid in Nuri (Nu.17). The size of his pyramid indicates that he reigned for only a short period of time. Known from a stela from his chapel in Meroe Museum (in Khartoum).[1]
