Tentamun (“she of Amun”) was an ancient Egyptian queen, the wife of Smendes of the 21st dynasty. She is likely to have been the daughter of Ramesses XI, last ruler of the previous dynasty. Her mother was possibly Tentamun, who was the mother of Ramesses's other daughter, Duathathor-Henttawy.

She is mentioned together with her husband on the Wenamun papyrus.
