Duaenhor was a Prince of Egypt. He was named after god Horus.

Family[edit]

Duaenhor is thought by some to be a son of Crown Prince Kawab and Queen Hetepheres II. If so, he would have been a grandson of Pharaoh Khufu and Queen Meritites I.[1] On the other hand, based on his titles, he may be one of the younger sons of Khufu (along with Khaemsekhem (G 7660), and Mindjedef (G 7760)).[2]

Duaenhor's brothers were Kaemsekhem and Mindjedef.[2] A daughter of Duaenhor was named Nebtyhotep.[3]

He held the titles King’s son of his body and Companion of his father.[4]

Tomb[edit]

Duaenhor was buried at Giza in mastaba G 7550. In the tomb his father and mother are mentioned. His daughter is also mentioned on the south entrance facade.[3]

The scenes in the tomb show:

  • (1) Duaenhor and his family
  • (2) Table scene
  • (3) Butchers at work
  • (4) False door of Duaenhor
