Ankhefenmut (transliteration: Ꜥnḫ-f-n-mwt, meaning: "He lives for Mut") was an ancient Egyptian prince of the Twenty-first Dynasty during the Third Intermediate Period.

Titles[]

In the temple of Khonsu at Karnak, Ankhefenmut is attested with the following titles: King's Son, Steward of Amun, Priest of Amun, Priest of Mut, and Overseer of the Horses.[1]

Family[]

See also: 21st Dynasty Family Tree.

Ankhefenmut was the eldest son of the High Priest of Amun Herihor, who was the de facto ruler of Upper Egypt from 1076-1070 BCE. He is depicted first in Herihor's procession of sons at the temple of Khonsu at Karnak.[1] Nedjemet, who is depicted leading the procession as queen consort, was probably his mother.

Burial[]

The whereabouts of Ankhefenmut's tomb and mummy remain unknown, but given his position he was presumably buried somewhere at the Theban Necropolis.
