Tentnabekhenut (transliteration: ṯnt-nꜣ.w-bḫn-nw) was an ancient Egyptian noblewoman of the Twenty-first Dynasty during the Third Intermediate Period.

Family[]

Tentnabekhenut is known from the Book of the Dead of the King's Daughter Nauny, in which she is attested as Nauny's mother.[1] As the mother of a princess, Tentnabekhenut was probably married to the High Priest of Amun and titular king of Upper Egypt, Pinedjem I. Hence, she may also have been the mother of Pinedjem's son Nespaneferher, whose mother remains unknown.

Burial[]

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