Princess Setepenre, was a part of the Eighteenth Dynasty of ancient Egypt.  Daughter of Akhenaten and Nefertiti, Setepenre was the last born of the six children:  Meritaten,  Meketaten,  Ankhesenpaaten,  Neferneferuaten Tasherit, and Neferneferure. Setepenre likely died around year 13 or 14. She died before she reached the age of six, and was most likely the first princess to die.


Setepenre was said to be in good condition. Many objects were found both inside and outside of the tomb, including coffins, masks, combs, and even some jewellery.


The cause of her death is still yet unknown.


Setepenre's name means “Chosen of Re”. She was born in the city of Akhetaten, and born around the 9th to 11th year of her father.
