Ankhenespepi I or Ankhenesmeryre I was a queen consort during the sixth dynasty of Egypt.
Both sisters - Ankhesenpepi I and II - were married to Pharaoh Pepi I whose throne name was Meryre; their name was probably taken when the marriage took place, since it means "Her life belongs to Pepi/Meryre". Both queens gave birth to successors of Pepi: the son of Ankhenespepi I was Merenre Nemtyemsaf I, who ruled only for a few years; the son of Ankhenespepi II was Pepi II, who succeeded after Nemtyemsaf's death.
Her titles were: King's Wife, King's Mother, Great of Sceptre.
