Intef I was a local Egyptian ruler at Thebes, and a member of the Eleventh dynasty during the First Intermediate Period. He was the first of his dynasty to assume the title of Pharaoh, with the Horus name Sehertawy, he who calms the Two Lands. This was contested by the other nomarchs of Egypt, chief among them the Tenth dynasty at Heracleopolis, and Intef I probably ruled little more than the surrounding areas of his capital.
He was succeeded by his brother Intef II.
