Does anybody know sth about pharaoh Sobeknofru? She was a 12th dynasty pharaoh and I only know about her these:
- there's a no-headed statue and she is wearing a man's cloth
- Manethon thought she was the sister of Amenemhat III
So? What do you know about Sobeknofru? Question Bye: Lostris

Sobeknefru may have been the sister of Neferuptah.

Neferuptah (daughter of Amenemhat III) started using a royal cartouche towards the end of her life, and she may have been regarded as a potential female king, but died before she could take the throne officially. Her intact tomb was found in 1956 in Hawara.

Sounds like an interesting family Very Happy

Found this reconstruction of what her statue may have looked like (I think they may have grafted Hatshepsut's head on the torso of Neferusobek)

Here's a statue with a head:
