Nebetu or Nebtu (ancient Egyptian: nbt-tw, "Lady of the Field") was an ancient Egyptian King's Wife of the Eighteenth Dynasty during the New Kingdom.

Family[]

Nebetu was a minor wife of Pharaoh Thutmose III.[1] Her parentage and offspring remains unknown.

Attestation[]

Nebetu is depicted behind her husband Thutmose III and his principal wives Sitiah and Meritre-Hatshepsut on a pillar in the KV34 tomb of the king. Nebetu is followed by Princess Nefertari. The names of Sitiah and Nefertari are followed by Maa Kheru, showing that they were already deceased when the tomb was made. Unlike the names of the principal wives, Nebetu's name is not enclosed in a cartouche,[2] which indicates that the latter was a minor wife.

Burial[]

The whereabouts of Nebetu's burial and mummy remain unknown.
