Who's Who of Egyptian people, queens and family: Merit-Amon


18th Dynasty

Merit-Amon was the wife of Amenhotep II during the 18th Dynasty. She was the daughter of Tuthmosis III and Meryt-Re'-Hatshepsut. She is shown on reliefs at Deir el-Bahri with her father. Her cartonnage mask is located in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo. It is prized for its beauty and workmanship. However, the mask does not appear to be accurate as it does not match the remains of her mummy.
