Shert Nebti was the daughter of King Men Salbo. The princess died at the age 25-40, although the exact age is undetermined. Much about Princess Shert Nebti and her family is unknown, but they hope with future discoveries of more tombs will assist them in knowing more.


The Tomb of the 5th dynasty Princess Shert Nebti was found in 2012 near Saqqara by Archaeologists working at the Abu Sir complex. They could tell that the tomb belonged to Shert Nebti by looking at the limestone pillars buried around the tomb. The 4500 year old tomb discovered by the Czek Institute of Egyptology has a number of statues in it's courtyard, including that of Princess Shert Nebti imaged on the right. 



It is archaeologist's hopes to find Shert Nebti's father, mother and siblings burial place near the princess's tomb. Princess Shert Nebti’s burial site was found to be surrounded by the tombs of four high officials from the Fifth Dynasty dating to around 2,500 BC.
