Henuttawy (ancient Egyptian: ḥnw.t-tꜣwy, "Mistress of the Two Lands") is an ancient Egyptian princess of the Twenty-first Dynasty during the Third Intermediate Period.


Henuttawy was the daughter of the High Priest of Amun Pinedjem I, who was the de facto ruler of Southern Egypt from 1070 BCE onwards, then proclaimed himself pharaoh in 1054 BCE. Her mother was Duathathor-Henuttawy, a daughter of Ramesses XI, last ruler of the New Kingdom. Henuttawy's brother ascended to the throne as Pharaoh Psusennes I, while three other brothers became High Priest of Amun; Masaharta, Djedkhonsiuefankh, and Menkheperre. Nespaneferher was a fifth brother. Her sisters include; Maatkare, who became God's Wife of Amun, Queen Mutnedjmet and probably Nauny.[1]


She is depicted in the Luxor temple with her father and two sisters, Maatkare and Mutnedjmet. She was a Chantress of Amun and Mut.


Henuttawy was buried together with relatives in the MMA 60 tomb at Deir el-Bahari. The tomb was discovered by Herbert E. Winlock during the 1923–24 season.[2]
