Mutnefret

(fl. 1500 BC)
   Wife of Thutmose I and mother of Thutmose II. Her origin is unknown, but she is generally described by Egyptologists as a minor or secondary wife. There is no evidence for this assertion, as she may have been the wife of Thutmose I before his accession to the throne, at which time he may have wed his sister, Queen Ahmose. Mutnefret may have been the mother of the king’s other sons, Amenmose and Wadjmose. APrincess Mutnefret was probably her granddaughter or great-granddaughter.
