The Seked could very well be the result of Sneferu's trial and error

The Royal Cubit was based on a King's elbow to fingertip length.

If I had to hazard a guess it would one of Narmer, Khasekhemwy, Netjerikhet, and Sneferu. All of whom were builders of note.

I can't see where knowing which King specifically would be indicative of anything other than the simple fact.
