Iuput held a variety of titles including high priest of Amun, generalissimo and army-leader and Governor of Upper Egypt.
It is not known who Iuput's mother was, but it is assumed that Lady Tashepenbast was his sister. Nimlot B and Osorkon I were (half-)brothers of Iuput. Iuput's daughter by an unknown wife was named Nesikhonsupakhered. She was the wife of Djedkhonsiufankh, who was a fourth priest of Amun.
Other Priests and Priestesses
From Iuput's time a handful of other people are known to have held positions in the Amun priesthood.
Djed-ptah-ef-ankh A served as second and third prophet of Amun in ca 945-935 BCE. Djed-ptah-ef-ankh was called the "King's Son of Ramesses" and "King's Son of the Lord of the Two Lands". He may have been related to the previous dynasty. Djed-ptah-ef-ankh was buried in the cache in DB320.
Nesy who was a chief of the Mahasun (a Libyan tribe) served as fourth prophet of Amun.
