      Ahmose-Meritamun«/b» (or «b»Ahmose-Merytamon;«/b» "Child of the Moon, Beloved of «u»Amun «/u»") was the royal daughter of «u»Ahmose I «/u» and «u»Ahmose Nefertari «/u», and became the «u»Great Royal Wife «/u» of her brother «u»Amenhotep I «/u», «u»pharaoh «/u» of «u»Ancient Egypt «/u» in the «u»eighteenth dynasty «/u».

      Her remains were discovered at «u»Deir el-Bahri «/u», where she had been rewrapped and reburied by priests who had found her tomb that had been vandalized by robbers. It appears that she died when she was in her early thirties, with evidence of being afflicted with «u»arthritis «/u» and «u»scoliosis «/u».

      A limestone statue of this queen was discovered by «u»Giovanni Belzoni «/u» while he was working in «u»Karnak «/u» in 1817.«u»[1]
      «/u»
      Her titles were: «i»Great Royal Wife«/i», «i»King's Daughter«/i», «i»King's Sister«/i», and «i»God's Wife«/i».
