Sobekemheb (transliteration: sbk-m-ḥb, meaning: "Sobek is in Jubilation") was an ancient Egyptian Princess of the Seventeenth Dynasty during the Second Intermediate Period.

Sobekemheb is only known from a stela of her husband, Prince Ameni. The stela was found in Coptos and it may be originally from Dendera; one half of it is in the Petrie Museum, the other is in the Pushkin Museum.[1] The stela mentions that princess Sobekemheb is a daughter of Pharaoh Sobekemsaf I and Queen Nubemhat.[2]
