Maatkare B was a wife of Pharaoh Osorkon I and the mother of Pharaoh Sheshonk II. Maatkare was the daughter of Psusennes II (also known as Pasebkhanut II).
Maatkare is known from several sources. A statue of the Nile-god - now in the British Museum (BM 8) - was dedicated by the High Priest of Amun Shoshenk, and he lists his parents as Osorkon I and Maatkare. Maatkare is called the King's Daughter of ... Har-Psusennes II, beloved of Amun. On a statue from the Karnak Cachette, also dedicated by her son Shoshenk, Maatkare has the titles Prophetess of Hathor, Lady of Dendera, God's Mother of Harsomtus, and King's Daughter.
A Karnak inscription on the seventh pylon names a woman called Maatkare, King's Daughter of Psusennes Beloved of Amun, and this is usually though to refer to Maatkare B.
