Re'emkuy was the son of Izezi, who was a ruler of the 5th Dynasty. He died at an early age and was placed in the tomb of Neferiryetnes, who was a judge of the royal courts. Re'emkuy was a counselor to the king as well as a priest in various capacities. The mastaba that the prince was buried in was altered before he was placed there. The reliefs and the decorations were changed to salute the prince.
