Horherwenemef (ancient Egyptian ḥrw-ḥr-wnm.f, "Horus is with his Right Arm") was an ancient Egyptian Prince of the Nineteenth Dynasty during the New Kingdom.

Family[]

Horherwenemef was a son of Pharaoh Ramesses II and the twelfth son in the procession of princes. The identity of his mother remains unknown, though he might have been the firstborn son by a minor wife and born during the latter years of his grandfather Seti I's reign.

Life[]

Unlike his brothers, Horherwenemef was not recorded to have been present during any of his father's militairy campaigns. Perhaps he was much younger and elevated in the line of procession due to his mother's status, or maybe he did not serve the military. He could also have been in poor health or deceased at a young age.

Burial[]

Since Merneptah (who is ranked lower than Horherwenemef in procession) became Crown Prince after the death of Khaemwaset, Horherwenemef most likely predeceased the latter.[1] Hence, Horherwenemef also predeceased his father and was likely buried in KV5, a large rock-cut tomb built for the sons of Ramesses II in the Valley of the Kings.
