Nubkhaes II (transliteration: nbw-ḫꜤ-s, meaning: "She Appears in Gold") was an ancient Egyptian Queen of the Seventeenth Dynasty during the Second Intermediate Period.

Nubkhaes II is only known from the Abbott Papyrus and the Leopold-Amherst Papyrus, dated to Year 16 of Pharaoh Ramesses IX. The papyri report the robbery of the royal tomb of Sekhemre-Shedtawy Sobekemsaf and Nubkhaes.

Family[]

As the queen consort of Sobekemsaf II and his only known wife, Nubkhaes II was probably the mother of his sons, Intef V and Intef VI, who succeeded their father in kingship.

Burial[]

Despite the reported robbery of her tomb, its location and that of her mummy remains unknown.
