The name of two queens, mother and daughter, of Dynasty 4. It is generally thought that the elder married Khafre and that their daughter then became the wife of Menkaure, but formal proof is lacking, although it seems likely that the elder was the mother of Menkaure. The younger was buried in a tomb at Giza in the cemetery near the pyramid of Khafre originally designed for her mother.
