King Thutep, one of the kings of the third dynasty of Nehekhara, was the predecessor to his brother Nagash. He took the throne after their father Khetep, greatest since the time of Settra, but was not long upon it.[1]

Nagash, the High Priest of Khemri at that time, was plotting against Thutep's life, with the intention of taking the throne for himself. One dark night, when the moon was shadowed, he and a loyal group of soldiers snuck into the palace and took Thutep. They put him in the pyramid of King Khetep and left him for dead.[1]

The next morning, Nagash proclaimed himself High Priest and King of Khemri, positions never occupied before or since by a single person.[1]
