Stork may have been an ancient Egyptian ruler (pharaoh) from the pre-dynastic period of Egypt.[1][2][3][4] Most modern scholars, however, doubt that he ever existed.[5]

Very little is known of his rule due to a scarcity of archeological evidence and a lack of written records. The dates and geographic extent of his rule are not known. His actual name is unknown though he used the stork hieroglyph to denote himself.
