Tomb locations of Khufu's family and nobles

Recommended Posts

In the Thanos thread on pyramid tombs we had a mention of two of Khufu's children being buried in the East Field. Since we have a more than a few smart people here I have a question for them (Harte you can answer too). Is there a map, diagram or database that shows where the tombs of the important/essential nobles and family members of Khufu are located? Does it exist in one place?

Thanks

Uncle Harte I would answer in a limerick that would cause a Vogon's head to split open and eyeballs to explode.  :o

Lehner and Hawass go into some detail on this in their Giza and the Pyramids, and give some names, where known, to a tomb, but the format is not suitable for replication here, and there is unfortunately no plan with a name alongside the tomb number. But surely somebody somewhere has done something like this ?

All I can add is G 7110-7120 for Kawab and Hetepheres II, G 7130-7140 for Khufukhaf and Neferetkau, G 7410-7420 Meresankh II and Horbaef?, G7310-7320 for Baufre, G 7430-7440 for Minkhaf and G 7510 for Ankh-haf.

On a website I made with two friends we added a list of tomb owners to a map taken from P&M, this can be seen here.

Hope this is usefull.

Yes it is I thought someone somewhere would have done that! Much appreciated

Now all we need is a Khufu family tree and a list of officials - if such exists.

Family tree

The following list presents family members, which can be assigned to Khufu with certainty.
Parents:[9][15][16]

  • Sneferu: Most possibly his father, maybe just stepfather. Famous pharaoh and builder of three pyramids.
  • Hetepheres I: Most possibly his mother. Wife of king Sneferu and well known for her precious grave goods found at Giza.

Spouses:

Brothers and Sisters:

  • Hetepheres: Wife of Ankhhaf.
  • Ankhhaf: The eldest brother. His nephew would later become pharaoh Khafra.
  • Nefermaat: Half-brother; buried at Meidum and owner of the famous "mastaba of the geese".
  • Rahotep: Elder brother or half-brother. Owner of a life-size double statue portraying him and his wife Nofret.

Sons of Khufu:

Daughters:

Grandchildren:

Nephews and nieces:

  • Hemiunu: Director of the building of Khufu's great pyramid.
  • Nefertkau III: Daughter of Meresankh II.

So the next question(s) are how robust are these identifications?

That IS a concern. However in the time of Corona I am filled with compassion and forgiveness for his poetic trespasses and have recalled my hit teams as they cannot maintain proper social distancing.

They have instead mailed him a sternly worded post card to desist.

Harte

If you do I will be forced to release the overdressed ugly pink guy with four arms.

I mean other than a really unappealing deodorant he uses he might also just give you an unsightly tattoo or give you a very odd four hour yoga class.

You have been warned

Don't take his innocent face as a sign that he's a complete moron. He is certainly not a complete one.
