Nefrure


Nefrure
(fl. 1480–1459 BC)
   Only daughter of Thutmose II and Queen Hatshepsut. She was given a prominent role at court by her mother and was placed in the care of Senenmut. She was possibly destined to marry her half brother, Thutmose III. It is not certain if she survived her mother or if this marriage took place, but she undoubtedly died fairly young and without issue.
