Meryre or Merira (transliteration: rꜤ-mry, meaning: "Beloved of Re") was an ancient Egyptian Prince of the Nineteenth Dynasty during the New Kingdom.

Family[]

Meryre was a son of Pharaoh Ramesses II and the eighteenth son in the procession of princes. The identity of his mother remains unknown. He was probably named after his deceased (half-)brother Meryre (eleventh in the procession).[1]

Burial[]

Meryre probably predeceased his father and was presumably buried in KV5, a large rock-cut tomb built for the sons of Ramesses II in the Valley of the Kings.
