Henutneferumut-Iryetre Shepenupet II (transliteration: šp-n-wp.t, meaning: "Gift of Opening") was an ancient Egyptian God's Wife of Amun of the Twenty-fifth Dynasty during the Third Intermediate Period. Her niece, Amenirdis II, the daughter of Taharqa, was appointed as her heiress but predeceased her. Shepenupet II was compelled to adopt Neithiqret I, the daughter of Psamtik I of the Twenty-sixth Dynasty, who reunited Egypt after the Assyrian conquest.
