Meritamun

   1. (fl. 1540–1500 BC)
   Egyptian princess and queen. Sister and wife of Amenhotep I of Dynasty 18 and thus likely daughter of Ahmose I and Ahmose-Nefertari. She appears to have had no issue. She was buried in tomb number 358 at Deir el-Bahri, which was discovered in the 1920s. A body identified as hers in the royal cache is thought to be a misattribution.
   See also Ahmose-Sipair; Sitamun.
   2. (fl. 1450 BC)
   Egyptian princess of Dynasty 18. Likely daughter of Thutmose III. She is attested in the chapel at Deirel-Bahriand several other monuments and is not to be confused with Meritamun of 1540–1500 BC.
   3. (fl. 1352–1338 BC)
   Original name Meritaten. Eldest daughter of Akhenaten and Nefertiti. She appears as queen toward the end of Dynasty 18, and it has been suggested that she was the wife of Smenkhkare or was possibly Smenkhkare herself. Her ultimate fate is unknown. A Princess Meritaten-tasherit attested on monuments from Amarna may be her daughter.
   4. (fl. 1279–l240 BC)
   A princess of Dynasty 19. She was the fourth daughter of Ramesses II by Nefertari. She became one of her father’s queens, and a colossal statue of her was discovered at Akhmim in 1981. She was buried in tomb QV68 in the Valley of the Queens.
