Pharaoh. Succeeding Ramses VII as the seventh pharaoh of the 20th dynasty, he is unusual in the succession as he appears to have been one of the last sons of Ramses III or possibly another 20th dynasty pharaoh. His reign of about one year is almost undocumented, he is known only by his representation in a procession of princes in the memorial temple of Rameses III at Madinat Habu, and is mentioned in a stela and a single scarab. No tomb has been positively identified for Rames VIII, but some scholars believe that KV19, used for the burial of Prince Mentuherkhepeshef, might have originally been intended for him.
