Amenherkhepeshef


Amenherkhepeshef
(fl. 1285–1255 BC)
   Eldest son of Ramesses II of Dynasty 19 and Nefertari. The prince appears to have been also known as Amenherwenemef and Setiherkhepeshef. He was named crown prince by his father and is attested until year 21 of the reign, when he was involved in diplomatic correspondence with the Hittites along with his mother. Amenherkhepeshef died before his father. He was buried in the tomb of the sons of Ramesses II (KV5) in the Valley of the Kings. A like-named son of Ramesses III, who died young, was buried in the Valley of the Queens (QV55).
