Esemkhet was a princess, and the half sister of Maatkare Mutemhet, who was a god's wife of Amun during the 21st dynasty.

Mummification

Esemkhet was discovered in her tomb with her pet gazelle. It was a common Egyptian tradition to do this not only to honor the role that the pet played in their life, but for various religious reasons (Egyptian Mummies).

In the tomb her pet gazelle had been placed in a nearby stone sarcophagus.
