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


4th Dynasty

Nekaure was the son of Khephren and was a prince during the 4th Dynasty. Nekaure was apparently an adult when he died. His will, that was found on the walls of his tomb at Giza said that he was "living on his two feet, without ailing in any respect" or in modern terms, that he was of sound mind and body. He left his towns and estates to his daughter. However, she died a premature death so these items were reverted back to him and then to his wife. Other properties of his were given to the priests to secure his funerary cult endowment.
