Maleqorobar (mɑləko'robɑr), also Malegereabar, was a queen or Candace of Kush (modern day Sudan) from 266 to 283 CE; she is one of eight Candaces known to the Western world. She ruled over the ancient kingdom from Meroe half a century prior to its final decline and sacking by the Roman proxy state of Axum. According to several sources, nothing is known of her reign.[1] Some list her as the last Candace of Meroe, but this is inaccurate; that title should be attributed to Lahideamani (306 to 314 CE).
