The last of the great pyramids built on the Giza Plateau is the Pyramid of Menkaure or Mycerinus.

The Pyramid of Menkaure (Mycerinus in Greek) is the last great pyramid to built on the Giza Plateau. Smaller than the other two, a 12th century Cairo Sultan tried to dismantle this pyramid, abandoning the task after eight months. The scar on the north face remains from this effort.

Menkaure's three queens are buried just to the south in the three tiny pyramids next to his.
