Some good work on the charts. Makes the reign lenths & dynastic overlaps that bit more tangible.

I'm not sure there's much more from Egypt that can be added in terms of chronology.  Without evidence from the books, any attempt to reconstruct Dynasty 11, Dynasty 17 (the Theban dynasty of Seqenenre Ta'a) or the Lesser Hyksos would be conjecture rather than "official" NC.

"Huzefa" (also "Hudjefa") seems to signify that the name of the king has been erased. Huzefa 2 would, therefore, appear to be one and the same with Har Khaba.

Huzefa 1, imho, would be Har Sekhemib-Perenma'at, sometimes identified with Set Peribsen.
