Queen Khentkawes II, wife of Neferirkare apparently
ruled for a brief time. Her pyramid, now mostly buried under the shifting
sands lies just besides are Husband Neferirkare. The entrance is still visible
and the mortuary temple is somewhat preserved. Only recently has it been confirmed
that Khentkawes was the owner of this pyramid. Block in the mortuary temple
discovered by the Czech archaeological, led by Miroslav Verner, have confirmed
this without a doubt. In the background is Lepsius XXIV.
