Amenemopet served as Viceroy of Kush during the reign of Seti I.

Amenemopet was the son of the Viceroy of Kush named Paser and thus the grandson of the Viceroy Amenhotep-Huy and his wife Taemwadjsy.

Amenemopet had a distinguished career. He served as the first charioteer of His Majesty, Fan-bearer on the king's right, governor of the Southern Lands, and King's son of Kush. Amenemopet is attested in texts on the road from Assuan to Philae, at Buhen, in Sehel and in the temple at Beit el-Wali.[1]

Amenemopet followed in his father's footsteps and became Viceroy of Kush during the final years of Horemheb or the early years of Seti I.[2]
