Egypt During the Reign of Akhenaton

Meritre

Egyptian princess married to Amenhophis III.

She may have been the mother of Smenkhara and/or Tutankhamon. If she was not the mother of both the two princes then it seems more likely that she wa dthe mother of Tutankhamon.

She may also have been the mother of Dhutmose.

 

We know very little about her life - it is possible that she was identical with Mutemwaya but unlikely as Mutemwaya was mentioned as being a Mittani princess.
