Djedefre - History
Ancient Egypt dot Org ^ | Last update: 8 May, 2003 | Jacques Kinnaer

Posted on 08/09/2004 4:25:53 PM PDT by SunkenCiv

Kheops [Khufu, building of the Great Pyramid] was succeeded by Djedefre, his oldest surviving son. The mother of Djedefre is unknown. He married his (half-) sister Hetepheres II, which may have been to legitimise his claims to the throne if his mother was one of Kheops’ lesser wives... The Turin King-list credits him with a rule of 8 years, but the highest known year referenced to during this reign was the year of the 11th cattle count. This would mean that Djedefre ruled for at least 11 years, if the cattle counts were anual, or 21 years if the cattle counts were biennal. He was the first king to use the title "Son of Re" as part of his titulary which is seen as an indication of the growing popularity of the cult of the solar god Re.

Here's an even older one:
Queen's pyramid found near Cairo
BBC News

Mr Hawass said the size and location of the pyramid suggested the tomb belonged to a woman, possibly the sister, daughter or wife of Redjedef. Hieroglyphics found in the tomb spelled out the word Cheops, said Mr Hawass. Redjedef succeeded Cheops, whose Great Pyramid is one of the most well-known.
The hieroglyphs in the cartouche can be read in various orders. :') Hence the different name for the same pharaoh. Interesting that Khufu's name was found in this pyra-mini. ;')
