Setepenre (ancient Egyptian: rꜥ-stp-n, "Chosen by Re") was an ancient Egyptian Prince of the Nineteenth Dynasty during the New Kingdom.

Family[]

Setepenre was a son of Pharaoh Ramesses II and the tenth son in the procession of princes. The identity of his mother remains unknown, though he may have been the firstborn son by a minor wife and born during the latter years of his grandfather Seti I's reign.

Biography[]

Setepenre was present during the Siege of Dapur in Year 10.[1]

Burial[]

Since Merneptah (who is ranked lower than Setepenre in procession) became Crown Prince after the death of Khaemwaset, Setepenre most likely predeceased the latter.[2] Hence, Setepenre also predeceased his father and was likely buried in KV5, a large rock-cut tomb in the Valley of the Kings built for the sons of Ramesses II.
