Hetepheres

Hetepheres

▪ queen of Egypt
      ancient Egyptian (Egypt, ancient) queen, wife of the king Snefru, who bore the title “Daughter of God” and represented the direct royal blood line of the 4th dynasty (c. 2575–c. 2465 BCE). Snefru probably married her in the middle of the reign of his predecessor, Huni, in order to establish his claim to the succession. She outlived her husband and was buried by their son and successor, Khufu, originally at Dahshūr but, after despoliation of the tomb, at Al-Jīzah (Jīzah, Al-) (Giza; her body, however, had already been destroyed). With this second burial were found the queen's carrying chair, gold-cased furniture, gold toiletries, pottery, linen, and silver bracelets.
