Amenherkhepshef (Jmn ḥr ḫpš.f)

Amenherkhepshef (also Amenherkhepshef D to distinguish him from earlier people of the same name) was an Ancient Egyptian prince and a son of Ramesses VI with Queen Nubkhesbed.[1] He lived in the mid 12th century BCE during the Twentieth dynasty of the late New Kingdom period.[2]

He died before his father and was buried in the reused sarcophagus of Twosret in an extension of the tomb originally planned for Chancellor Bay, KV13.[2] The tomb is located in the Valley of the Kings, on the west bank of the Nile, in Thebes, Egypt.
