Nebty-tepites (nebty = "Two Ladies") was a Princess of Ancient Egypt. She is mentioned in the tomb of her mother, Meresankh II.[1]

Biography[edit]

Nebty-tepites was a daughter of Prince Horbaef and his half-sister Meresankh II. She had a sister Nefertkau III and a brother Djaty. After Horbaef's death, Meresankh married one Pharaoh, either Djedefra or Khafra and she became a Queen. So, Nebty-tepites was a niece and step-daughter of her mother's second husband.[2]
