Ankhnesneferibre


Ankhnesneferibre
(fl. c. 590–525 BC)
   Daughter of Psamtik II of Dynasty 26 and Takhut. She was adopted by her great-aunt Nitocris in 595 BC and succeeded her as God’s wife of Amun in 586 BC. She held the post until the Persian invasion of 525 BC, after which there is no further record of her. Ankhnesneferibre is the last attested God’s wife, although a later classical source implies that the office continued. Her reused sarcophaguswas discovered at DeirelMedina and is now in the British Museum.
