Sheshonq II ruled for only a year or so, and probably as a co-regent with his father Osorkon I. He was originally in the position of High Priest of Amun, but was nominated as co-regent and had his name inscribed in a cartouche with all the titles of pharaoh.

He died early, however, and was succeeded by his step-brother Takelot I.

His tomb has not been found, although his mummy was found in the tomb of Psusennes in Tanis along with his burial treasure -- a gold mask, silver sarcophagus, amulets, and other precious objects.
