Baketwerenro (ancien Egyptian: bk.t-wr-n-r) also called Baketwernel was an ancient Egyptian Queen of the Twentieth Dynasty during the New Kingdom.

Family[]

Baketwerenro was the queen consort of Pharaoh Ramesses IX. She was possibly the mother of his known children; Mentuherkhepeshef, Nebmaatre and possibly Pharaoh Ramesses X as well. Baketwerenro's parentage is unknown.

Burial[]

Baketwerenro was buried in tomb KV10 in the Valley of the Kings, built for the late 19th Dynasty usurper-pharaoh Amenmesses, where a chamber was redecorated for her use.[1] Because of this fact, she was previously thought to have been Amenmesses' wife.[2]

Dodson (1987) has argued that the redecoration in tomb KV10 was done during the reign of Ramesses IX.[3] Schaden and Ertman (1989) however claim that some of the work in the room for Baketwerenro may have been done during the reign of Queen Tausret. If so, this would suggest an earlier date for Queen Baketwerenro.[4]
