Native name of Nyuserre was Ini. Queen Khentkaus II ruled for sometime at the time of interregnum and she ensured power for her son Nyuserre. Some courtiers were honoured, such as Ptahshepses, who became a vizier and Nyuserre's son-in-law (his mastaba was the biggest non-royal construction in the Middle Kingdom).
Nyuserre built himself a complex in Abusir, which is different with its plan from the others. He had to finished complexes of his father, brother and mother. The sun temple of this ruler "Delight of Ra" in Abu Gurab is the second found temple of this type.
