Henutwati or Ta-Henutwati was an Ancient Egyptian queen of the twentieth dynasty; the Great Royal Wife of Ramesses V.[1]

Henutwati's estate is mentioned in the Wilbour Papyrus, a document dated to the reign of Ramesses V. Based on this document, Henutwati is thought to be a wife of this King, but it is possible she dates to an earlier period.

Wolfram Grajetzki gives the hieroglyphs as transcribed from hieratic as follows:
