Amenemopet was an Ancient Egyptian prince during the 18th dynasty, probably a son of Amenhotep II.[1]

He is known from the so-called Stela C found in the Sphinx temple of Amenhotep II. He is identified as a son of this pharaoh based on the stela, which is stylistically datable to the reign of Amenhotep II.[2] It is possible that he is the Prince Amenemopet shown on the stela of the royal nurse Senetruiu.[3]
