Sadeh was a princess of the 11th Dynasty,
and was either the daughter or concubine of Mentuhotpe II
(c. 2061-2010 B.C.). She was listed as a "sole
Favorite of the King," a phrase used to denote a
lesser-ranked wife in that era. There are some
indications that she was actually a daughter of Queen Ashait, another lesser-ranked
royal woman of Mentuhotpe's reign.
