Anhernakht was the son of Minnakht and Tanedjemet. His paternal grandfather was Pennesutawy who served as a Captain of troops and Governor of the South Lands during the reigns of Ramesses I and Sethi I. Anhernakht followed in his father and grandfather's footsteps. He served as royal scribe, fan-bearer on the right of the king, overseer of the Southern Lands and head of bowmen (of Kush).
