|Rule:||3rd Dynasty: 2599-2575 BC|
|Nomen:||Birth name: Huni: The smiter|
|Consorts:||Queen Meresankh 1|
|Reign:||- Very little about this Pharaoh, the last king of the 3rd Dynasty
- He established a fortress in Elephantine, securing the southern border of Egypt at the First Cataract.
- He changed tradition by moving the royal necropolis from Saqqara, south to Meidum in Fayum
- He was the father of Snefru, out of Meresankh, who was either a lesser wife or concubine.
- Substantial construction
|Burial:||- He might have started the construction of the pyramid at Meidum, which was later finished by Snefru
However there is no evidence that the Meidum pyramid was his burial place, since only Snefru and his family appear in the inscriptions, this gave ground to a theory that Snefru built the Pyramid of Meidum pyramid alone, and Huni has nothing to do with it
Unique to the pyramid; however, is the first square ground plan unlike the rectangular plans of previous mastabas, an architectural invention which was introduced to all future of Egyptian pyramids
|Successor:||- His successor was his son Snefru who legitimized the throne by marring to his half sister queen Hetepheres, who was also the daughter of Huni|
