Mehytenweskhet B, sometimes called Mehtenweskhet, (transliteration: mḥyt-n-wsḫt, meaning: "Mehit from the Broad Hall") was an ancient Egyptian noblewoman of the Twenty-first and Twenty-second Dynasty during the Third Intermediate Period.

Family[]

Mehytenweskhet was probably the daughter of the Great Chief of the Ma Nimlot and Tentsepeh. This would make her a sister of Shoshenq I, who would become the founding pharaoh of the 22nd Dynasty. Mehytenweskhet was married to the High Priest of Ptah Shedsunefertem[1] and may have been the mother of her husband's son and successor, Shoshenq.

Burial[]

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