Crown Prince Thutmose

I am Crown Prince Thutmose,
the eldest son of Pharaoh Amenhotep III and Queen Tiye. I had one elder sister, Sitamun, and four younger sisters, the princesses Henut-Taneb, Isis, Nebetah, and Beketaten. I also had at least one younger brother, Prince Amenhotep (future Pharaoh, Akhenaten). I died somewhere between year 27 and year 33 in my father's reign, so I never became a Pharaoh. If I had, I would have been Pharaoh Thutmose V, and the Amarna Period as we know would never had occurred.

Little is known about me, I'm a rather obscure Amarna figure. During my life I was, however, a very important member of the family. I was a member of the priesthood of Ptah in Memphis (possibly the High Priest) and had a role in the military. I seemed to have spent most of my life in Memphis, but it might very well be my body that was burried with the "Elder Lady" thought to be Queen Tiye in the Valley of the Kings (near Thebes).

One more interesting note: even though I was the Crown Prince, I had a pet cat, Ta-Miu ('the Kitten' or 'the lady cat'), who, like many animals in Ancient Egypt, was mummified and placed in her own sarcouphagus when she died.
