The name of two princesses of Dynasty 25 who were adopted as God’s wife of Amun. Amenirdis I was the daughter of Kashta and Pebtama,and her adoption by ShepenwepetI was an indication of the control of Thebes exercised by the ruler of Nubia. Amenirdis II, daughter of Taharqo, was adopted by Shepenwepet II as her heir, but it is not certain if she succeeded, as Dynasty 25 was ousted from Thebes by Psamtik I of Dynasty 26, who sent his daughter, Nitocris, to become God’s wife.
