Menkheperre (transliteration: mn-ḫpr-rꜥ, meaning: "Eternal Manifestation of Re") was an ancient Egyptian Prince of the Eighteenth Dynasty during the New Kingdom.

Family[]

Menkheperre was a son of Pharaoh Thutmose III and Queen Meritre-Hatshepsut.[1] His name is the throne name of his father. His brother became Pharaoh Amenhotep II. The princesses Iset, Meritamen, another Meritamen and Nebetiunet were his sisters.

Menkheperre is depicted together with his sisters on a statue of their maternal grandmother Huy (now in the British Museum).[2] Amenhotep II is absent, despite also being known as a child of Meritre-Hatshepsut.

Burial[]

The whereabouts of Menkheperre's burial and mummy remain unknown. It is likely that some canopic jar fragments from the Valley of the Queens belong to him.[1]
