Amenemweskhet (transliteration: ỉmn-m-wsḫt, meaning: "Amun is in the Broad Hall") was High Priest of Amun under Pharaoh Thutmose IV of the Eighteenth Dynasty during the New Kingdom.

Attestation[]

Amenemweskhet is merely known from a graffito at Konosso dated to the reign of Thutmose IV.[1]

Burial[]

Amenemweskhet might be identical to the individual of the same name buried in the QV8 rock-cut tomb in the Valley of the Queens. This would be in line with Thutmose IV granting burials at the royal necropolis to various high officials such as Maiherpri, Userhat and Amenemopet-Pairy, all of whom were interred in the Valley of the Kings.
