Tentamun (ancient Egyptian: tỉnt-ỉmn, "She of Amun") was an ancient Egyptian Princess of the Eighteenth Dynasty during the New Kingdom.

Family[]

Tentamun was the daughter of Pharaoh Thutmose IV.[1] Her mother's identity is unknown. Pharaoh Amenhotep III was her (half-)brother.

Burial[]

Tentamun died in the same year as her father and was buried in KV43, her father's rock-cut tomb in the Valley of the Kings. Thutmose IV himself and a brother called Amenemhat were also interred in the tomb.[1] A fragment of a canopic jar belonging to Tentamun was found in the tomb. The fragment is now in the Museum of Egyptian Antiquities in Cairo.[1]
