Ahhotep II was the daughter of Ahmose I and
Ahmose-Nefertari and was the wife of the 18th Dynasty
I who ruled from 1525 - 1504 BC. She was the sister
and was his ranking consort throughout her life. The
records listed her as "King's Daughter, King's Wife,
King's Mother". This was not understood since Amenhotep
I died without an heir. The mystery was solved when the
mummy of a baby boy was found at Deir el-Bahri at Thebes.
Insignias found on the mummy identified him as the son of
I and Queen Ahhotep. He apparently died when he was 1
or 2 years old. He was buried after his death, but
priests of the 20th Dynasty
discovered that his tomb had been violated. They reburied
him near his aunt, Princess Ahmose
Meryt-amon. Ahhotep was buried at Thebes.
