Dodson and Hilton, "The Complete Royal Families of Ancient Egypt" [page 207] still have HP Masaharta as being a son of Pinudjem I. They also state that Masaharta was responsible for the restoration of the mummy of Amenhotep I in Year 16 of Smendes I. They opine that Masaharta may have died in Year 24 of the reign.

Manetho had nothing to say about Dynasty 20, I feel sure, as even Africanus, who came later, fails to name a single king of that house. He and Eusebius say only "12 kings". The only text that, in my opinion, attempts to name any of the 20th Dynasty pharaohs is the pseudo-Manetho Book of Sothis, but makes quite a mess of the effort. Africanus assigns 26 years to Smendes in Dynasty 21.
