Nehesy Aasehre ?

Dynasty of Ancient Egypt about 1773-1650 BCE, 113 years, consisting of an unknown number of rulers, most are unknown to modern scholars. Maneth suggest as many as 76 kings, the Turin List gives 32. The actual number must have been much lower, many of the names were in fact pseudonyms of other rulers.
This dynasty ran parallel to the 13th Dynasty. The two dynasties are part of the Middle Kingdom, representing the last period and decline.
This dynasty ruled over Lower Egypt, from the city of Xois in the Nile Delta. It is possible that the rulers of this dynasty were related to the Hyksos of the 15th Dynasty, some evidence suggest they were of Semitic origin. This is suggested by the name of the king Yakobaam, while another known king, Nehesy, is Egyptian for "Nubian."
It is quite possible that this dynasty was divided into regions, with independent or semi-independent rulers.
