Hetepheres I was the wife of Snofru
and the mother of Khufu.
Her funeral furnishings, which were gold inlaid and
covered in semiprecious stones, were all moved to a new
place by Khufu's vizier, Hemiunu.
Her mummy had been reburied, because the original
sarcophagus had been stolen by grave robbers. She was
honored by Khufu and his court. All of her furnishings
and toilet articles have provided many details about the
extent of the royal luxuries and comforts of her era.
Some of the things that were found were razors that were
made of layers of gold. All of the contents of her burial
chamber can be found in both the Museum of Fine Arts in
Boston and the Egyptian Museum in Cairo.
