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.

Family[]

Ankhefenmut is generally assumed to have been the eldest son and heir apparent of Pharaoh Psusennes I and Queen Mutnedjmet. However, attempts have been made to equate him with one of the other individuals of the dynasty with the same name.[1] Pharaoh Amenemopet is probably another son of Psusennes I and, as such, a younger brother of Ankhefenmut. Princess Isetemakhbit, Psusennes' known daughter by another wife named Wiay, would be their half-sister.

Burial[]

A burial chamber was made for Ankhefenmut in Psusennes I's NRT III tomb at Tanis. The chamber was filled up entirely by his intended sarcophagus. His name, titles and figures have been deliberately erased, suggesting he fell from grace.[2]
