10th Dynasty : names of this dynasty certainly not known, some of them are:-
Fourteen Heracleopolitans who ruled the north and fought the Thebans of contemporary Dynasty XI until defeated by Nebhepetre Mentuhotep II between 2047 and 2022. Six kings are attested in contemporary sources. Others cannot be dated even approximately.
