Nefruptah


Nefruptah
(fl. 1810 BC)
   The name of at least two royal princesses of Dynasty 12. The more notable was the daughter of Amenemhat III, whose intact tomb was discovered in 1955 at Hawara near the pyramid of her father. Her body had been dissolved by water seepage, but jewelry and funerary material were recovered. Asarcophagus inscribed for her was also found in her father’s burial chamber, but it was either not used or used only temporarily. Her importance is witnessed by the fact that her name is written in a cartouche.
