Khenemetneferhedjet II (Weret) was an ancient Egyptian queen of the 12th dynasty, a wife of Senusret III.[1]

She was one of four known wives of Senusret III, the other three were Meretseger, Neferhenut and (possibly) Sithathoriunet.[2] Her name was also a queenly title used in the era: khenemetneferhedjet means “united with the white crown”. She is mentioned on two of her husband's statues (now located in the British Museum and in the Egyptian Museum, respectively; the latter was found in Herakleopolis). She was buried in Pyramid IX in the Dahshur pyramid complex, where her jewellery was found in 1994.[1]

Her titles were: King's Wife; Great of Sceptre.[1]
