“Czech archaeologists have unearthed the tomb of a previously unknown queen believed to have been the wife of Pharaoh Neferefre who ruled 4,500 years ago,” officials in Egypt say. The country’s antiquities minister, Mamdouh al-Damaty, said the name of Neferefre’s wife was not known before but she is now identified as Khentakawess. Or, Khentakawess III, to be more exact, as two previous queens with the same name have already been identified.
Her name was inscribed on the inner walls of the tomb. Mr. Damaty explains, “probably by the builders” of the tomb.
