Seti' (ancient Egyptian: stḫy, "One of Set") was an ancient Egyptian of royal descent from the Nineteenth Dynasty during the New Kingdom.

Family[]

Seti is merely known from a single ostracon, which mentions his father Prince Amunherkhepeshef, who was the eldest son of Pharaoh Ramesses II and Queen Nefertari. Amunherkhepeshef is known from the same ostracon to have had a wife named Nefertari,[1] who is therefore probably Seti's mother and probably identical with Ramesses II's daughter, Princess Nefertari. This princess was possibly a daughter of Queen Nefertari as well, in which case Seti's parents would've been full-siblings.

Burial[]

The whereabouts of Seti's tomb and mummy remain unknown.
