Djedefhor or Hordjedef was an ancient Egyptian prince of the 4th dynasty. His name means "Enduring Like Horus".


in hieroglyphs

Djedefhor was a son of Pharaoh Khufu and half-brother of pharaohs Djedefre and Khafre.[1] Queen Meritites I is named in the tomb G 7220 of Djedefhor and it is possible she is his mother.[2]

He is mentioned on an inscription in Wadi Hammamat, his name appears in a cartouche, written after the names of Khufu, Djedefre and Khafre, preceding the name of another of his brothers, Baufra.[3] There is no evidence that either Djedefhor or Baufra ruled as a pharaoh, even though only pharaohs' names were written in cartouches during the 4th dynasty.

The Teachings of Djedefhor, a document of which only fragments remain, is attributed to him. Djedefhor seems to have been deified after his death.[1] The wisdom text by Djedefhor was written as advice to his son, Prince Auibra.[citation needed]
