Tawerettenru (ancient Egyptian: tꜣ-wr.t-n-rw) was an ancient Egyptian Queen[1] of the Twentieth Dynasty during the New Kingdom.

Family[]

Tawerettenru is only known from the Wilbour Papyrus, which mentions her name along with another lady Henutwati and notes the title of queen for both of them. Based on the fact that this document is dated to the reign of Pharaoh Ramesses V, she is believed to be his queen.[2] It remains possible that she dates to an earlier period.

Burial[]

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