Neferubity (ancient Egyptian: nfr.w-bỉty, "The Beauties of Lower Egypt") was an ancient Egyptian Princess of the Eighteenth Dynasty during the New Kingdom.

Family[]

Neferubity was a daughter of Pharaoh Thutmose I and Queen Meritre-Hatshepsut.[1] She was the sister of Queen and later Pharaoh Hatshepsut. Her half-brothers include Pharaoh Thutmose II and the princes; Amenmose and Wadjmose.

Neferubity is only known from a depiction as a child with her parents in the mortuary temple of Hatshepsut at Deir el-Bahari. It is therefore assumed that she died young.[2][3]

Burial[]

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