Who's Who of Egyptian people, queens and family: Amenaankhu


12th Dynasty

Amenaankhu was employed by Djehutyhotep, the splendid governor of the Hare nome, to decorate his tomb at El-Bersheh. The paintings which Amenaankhu produced for his patron are among the finest to survive from the Middle Kingdom. The design and decoration of the coffins of Djehutyhotep and his wife are also particularly fine and were probably the work of Amenaankhu.
