He was considered one of the Great Hyksos kings, and his power extended beyond the Delta kingdom that was controlled by the Hyksos. His name has been found as far away as the Mediterranean shore and Crete.
As always, Manetho give him a long reign of 50 years, which is double what the normal modern estimate is. It is normally assumed that he ruled about 25 years,which is still a tremendous reign for the kings in this period, who often ruled only a small part of Egypt for a very small portion of time.
His name is well known outside of Egypt, with seals and other artifacts from as far away as Knossos in Crete and Bogaskoy (the capitol of the Hittite kingdom) and in the northern mountains of modern Turkey. Normally, his name is found with the title "Ruler of Foreign Lands".
