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? :?: 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 :D

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:
