Most distinguished event the reign of pharaoh Djoser was no doubt the establishment of the new capital city of Memphis (Mennoferu), which replaced the Cenej (near Abydos). Djoser has made history and that he commissioned his vizier, Imhotep inventive, construction of the Step Pyramid at Saqqara.
Djoser took the good habits of their predecessors and continued in the first raids on Egyptian Nubia. Pharaoh, who ascended the throne after Zoser, we know almost nothing. These rulers were called Sekhemkhet, Chaba, Neferka and Huni.
