Nebetiunet (“Lady of Dendera”; a title of the goddess Hathor) 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, Meritamen, the second Meritamen and Iset.[2] She is depicted together with her sisters and Menkheperre on a statue of their maternal grandmother Hui (now in the British Museum).
