Baketanen

(fl. c. 1350 BC)
   Royal princess known only from a relief at Amarna, where she is depicted with her mother, Queen Tiy. It is presumed that she was an otherwise unattested daughter of Amenhotep III, but it is possible that she was in fact a granddaughter of Tiy and daughter of Akhenaten.
