Menkheperre was a prince of the Eighteenth dynasty of Egypt, one of two known sons of Pharaoh Thutmose III and his Great Royal Wife Merytre-Hatshepsut.[1] His name is the throne name of his father and means “Eternal are the manifestations of Re”.

He is one of six known children of Thutmose and Merytre; his siblings are Pharaoh Amenhotep II, and princesses Nebetiunet, Meritamen, the second Meritamen and Iset.[2] He is depicted together with his sisters on a statue of their maternal grandmother Hui (now in the British Museum). It is likely that some canopic jar fragments from the Valley of the Queens are his.[3]
