Iset (transliteration: st, meaning: "Isis") was an ancient Egyptian Princess of the Eighteenth Dynasty during the New Kingdom.

Family[]

Iset was a daughter of Pharaoh Thutmose III and Queen Meritre-Hatshepsut.[1] Her brothers include Pharaoh Amenhotep II and Prince Menkheperre. The princesses Nebetiunet, Meritamen and another Meritamen were her sisters.

Iset is depicted together with her sisters and Menkheperre on a statue of their maternal grandmother Huy (now in the British Museum); she is depicted as smaller than her siblings, so she is likely to have been the youngest of them.[2] Amenhotep II is absent, despite also being known as a child of Meritre-Hatshepsut.

Burial[]

The whereabouts of Iset's burial and mummy remain unknown.
