Kama (transliteration: kꜢmꜤ) was an ancient Egyptian King's Wife of perhaps the Twenty-second Dynasty during the Third Intermediate Period.

Kama's connection to the royal family remains unknown, though she is known to have been buried at Leontopolis. Kama has been suggested to be identical to Queen Karomama B and would then be the wife of Pharaoh Osorkon II. Alternatively, she is thought to possibly have been the wife of Iuput II, a non-dynastic local ruler of Leontopolis during the time of Piye's invasion of Egypt.[1]
