Ti, who was known as Tiy in some records, was an official during the 5th Dynasty, and served in the reign of Kakai (2446-2426 B.C.). Ti's tomb has become one of the most famous sites in Egypt because of its inscriptions and reliefs which are elaborate depictions of daily life and mortuary legends. The tomb, located in Saqqara, also contained a painted statue of Ti, standing almost 6-1/2 feet high. Ti was married to Princess Neferhetepes, the daughter of Kakai. His sons inherited the royal rank.
