    Is there a reason why you expect to be able mate the black king in four moves or less? e.g. is this a helpmate puzzle? If so, the question could benefit from adding that. Aug 22, 2022 at 2:04

Fun problem. White mates with 1.Ke3 Qg4 2.Kf2 (where the king goes doesn't matter) 2...Kg6 3.Ne5+ Kh5 4.hxg4#.
