Inetkaes was an ancient Egyptian princess of the Third dynasty.

Inetkaes was the only known child of Pharaoh Djoser and Queen Hetephernebti, and she was a granddaughter of Khasekhemwy and Nimaethap.[1]

She is mentioned on the boundary stelae surrounding Djoser's step pyramid (these are now to be found in various museums) and is depicted on a relief found in Heliopolis (now in Torino). This shows the enthroned pharaoh accompanied by smaller figures of Inetkaes and Hetephernebti.[2]
