Ancient Egyptian Royalty. Born a younger son of Ramses III and his Great Royal Wife, Tyti. He was recorded as being The Fan Bearer to the Right of the Pharaoh, Overseer of Horses, and a royal scribe. He was also the Superior of the Two Lands, which indicated that he had a role in the management of the administrative affairs of the kingdom. The prince died young, probably while still in his teens; all of his tomb art depicts him as wearing the side lock of a royal youth. His tomb, now designated QV55, was discovered in 1903 during the second excavation campaign by the Italian Archaeological Mission. While it had been completely looted in antiquity, the decorations were in excellent condition, the prince, however, never made use of his tomb. A sarcophagus, originally intended for Queen Tausret, was altered for Amenherkhepshef and was discovered in the tomb KV13. The prince's name has also been spelled Amunherkhepshef and Amun-her-Khepshef.
