Khaemwaset (ancient Egyptian: ḫꜥ-m-wst, "He who Appears in Thebes") was a high official during the late Eighteenth Dynasty of the New Kingdom.

Bibliography[]

Khaemwaset is probably identical with the Royal Fanbearer and Chief of the Bowmen of Kush, Khaemwaset, who is mentioned on a statue found at Kawa dating to the reign of Pharaoh Tutankhamun.[1] Khaemwaset's wife Taemwadjes was Chief of the Harem of Amun and is probably the same Taemwadjes who was later remarried to the Viceroy of Kush, Amenhotep-Huy.

His brother Seti was also a troop commander and later became the forefather of the Nineteenth Dynasty. Khaemwaset is the uncle of Pharaoh Ramesses I.

Burial[]

The whereabouts of Khaemwaset's tomb and mummy remain unknown.
