bullet   Another name for Henttawy was Duathathor-Henuttawy.


bullet  General Notes:

or Henuttawy ("Adorer of Hathor; Mistress of the Two Lands") was an ancient Egyptian princess and later queen. She is likely to have been the daughter of Ramesses XI , last king of the 20th dynasty [1] by Tentamun .[2] She married Pinedjem I , the Theban High Priest of Amun who de facto ruled Upper Egypt and took on pharaonic titles later on. Henttawy's sister Tentamun married Pharaoh Smendes I , who was pharaoh of Egypt, but in reality ruled only Lower Egypt from Tanis .
Duathathor-Henuttawy held several titles, including King's Daughter; King's Wife; King's Mother; Lady of the Two Lands; Mistress of the Two Lands; Daughter of the Great Royal Wife; Foremost Singer of Amun; Mother of the Great Royal Wife; Mother of the High Priest of Amun; Mother of Generalissimo.[1] This helps us identify which of Pinedjem's children were hers: Psusennes I , who went on to become pharaoh in Tanis; his wife Mutnedjmet ; and Maatkare , who became God's Wife of Amun. It is likely se was also the mother of Henuttawy who is depicted along with Maatkare and Mutnedjmet in Karnak .[3] It is more difficult to identify the high priest referred to in her titles: three of Pinedjem's sons, Masaharta , Djedkhonsuefankh and Menkheperre became high priests, and one, two or all three of them could have been Duathathor-Henuttawy's son.[4]
She is mentioned before her husband's ascendence to the throne on a chalice found in Tanis, on a door lintel and on a relief in the Khonsu temple in the Karnak temple complex. Even here she is mentioned as a queen, with her name written in a cartouche . Later she is also mentioned on a stela in Coptos, in Mut's temple in Karnak and on several objects found in her son's Tanis tomb. She is depicted on the facade of the Khonsu temple in Karnak.[5]
Her mummy and coffins were found in the DB320 cache along with those of several members of her immediate family. They are now in the Egyptian Museum of Cairo .[1]
