Iset or Isis was a princess of the Eighteenth dynasty of Egypt, a daughter of Pharaoh Thutmose III and his Great Royal Wife Merytre-Hatshepsut.[1]

She is one of six known children of Thutmose and Merytre; her siblings are Pharaoh Amenhotep II, Prince Menkheperre and princesses Nebetiunet, Meritamen and the second Meritamen.[2] She is depicted together with her sisters and Menkheperre on a statue of their maternal grandmother Hui (now in the British Museum); she is depicted as smaller than her siblings, so she is likely to have been the youngest of them.[3]
