Granite head of Huni
|Pharaoh of Egypt|
|Spouse||Queens Djefatnebti and Meresankh I|
|Issue||Queen Hetepheres I and Pharaoh Sneferu|
|Religion||Ancient Egyptian religion|
One of officials of king Djoser was also named Huni, and it's possible that this man and pharaoh Huni are the same person.
Huni had two wives - Djefatnebti and Meresankh I. With Djefatnebti, he fathered Hetepheres I, and with Meresankh he sired Sneferu, his own successor. Sneferu became a king after Huni's death, and he married his half-sister Hetepheres. Huni's grandson - son of Sneferu - was pharaoh Khufu, who built Great Pyramid of Giza.
