Tentamun

(fl. 1085 BC)
   Wife of Nesbanebdjed, mayor of Tanis and later first ruler of Dynasty 21. She is mentioned along with her husband in the tale of Wenamun. There is no reason to doubt her identification with Queen Tentamun, daughter of the official Nebseny, thus she did not have a royal pedigree since it has been previously suggested that she might be a daughter of Ramesses XI. Her daughter, Henttawy, apparently married the high priest of Amun Pinudjem I.
