Huni was the last pharaoh of the Third dynasty of Egypt. He established a fortress on the island of Elephantine, securing the southern border of Egypt at the First Cataract. Huni was a father of Hetepheres. A certain Huni is mentioned amongst the names of high officials from the court of Djoser, and if this was indeed the same man as this pharaoh, it is possible that Huni came to the throne at a very venerable age. He is credited with a 24-year reign in the Turin King List.

Huni was father of Hetepheres I and Sneferu, and grandfather of Khufu (Cheops).
