Rekhmire' was an official during the 18th Dynasty
who served as vizier to Tuthmosis III (1479-1425 B.C.).
The son of a priest of Amon, Nefer-Weben, and the nephew
of the vizier Woser, Rekhmire' became the most powerful
commoner in the country during Tuthmosis' reign. His
Theban tomb contains some autobiographical material and
scenes that show him and Meryt, his wife, reveling in the
joys of eternity. The tomb also holds the decrees given
by the king concerning Rekhmire''s role as vizier, which
makes it an invaluable reference concerning the
political, legal and social aspects of the New Kingdom
and the empire.
