Khetep was the regent of Queen Rasut's infant son. When the child died Khetep assumed power immediately, and proceeded to use the power of Nehekhara for his own glorification. He began the 3rd Dynasty. He was the father of Nagash and Thutep.
He had the Great Pyramid of Khetep built within the Necropolis of Khemri, taking one million slaves twenty five years on the order of their king to construct. This acted as a beacon, showing the rest of Nehekhara that Khetep was all powerful.
