Sekhemre Shedwast (Sekhemreshedwaset) was a native Ancient Egyptian king of the 16th Theban dynasty during the Second Intermediate Period and the successor of king Bebiankh.
It has been suggested, but not currently accepted, that Sekhemre Shedwast may be identical to Sekhemre-shedtawi Sobekemsaf II--since their royal names differ. If so, he may have been married to Queen Nubkhaes II and they may have had a son named Sekhemre-Wepmaat Intef.
The royal name Sekhemre Shedwaset translates literally as "the Might of Re which rescues Thebes."
