Plaza 3 at Ixkun, from where Ik's son ruled

Lady Ik was the mother of Rabbit God K, Maya king of Ixkun, an ancient Maya city in the Petén Department of modern Guatemala. It is possible that she was a princess.

The text of Stela 1 suggests that Lady Ik was originally from another city named Akbal, which has yet to be identified.[1]
