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


4th Dynasty

Kewab was the son of Khufu and was married to Princess Hetepheres II. He was the father of Queen Meresankh III and was probably the rightful heir to the throne. However, he either died before he could assume the throne or was murdered by Ra'djedef. On the walls of Queen Meresankh's tomb, he is shown to be a portly man. His own grave was located in the eastern section of Giza beside the Great Pyramid.
