Khenemet-Nefer-Hedjet

   The name of a princess and two queens of Dynasty 12. The princess was a daughter of Amenemhat II, but her fate is unknown, although she might be identical with Queen Khenemet-nefer-hedjet the elder. Queen Khenemet-neferhedjet the elder was the chief wife of Senusret II and mother of Senusret III, while Khenemet-nefer-hedjet the younger was the wife of Senusret III. The parentage of either queen is uncertain. The name was later used as a royal title for the queen.
