Birth: unknown
Death: unknown

Egyptian Royalty. Born the son of Ramses II and Queen Istnofret of the 19th Dynasty. Apparently precocious, while still a child, he took part in a military campaign in Nubia. On a visit to Saqqara he commissioned a historical study of the necropolis there, earning him the modern nickname of Egyptologist Prince. While in the temple of Ptah at Memphis he designed a burial for the Bulls of Apis which were considered to be the incarnation of the gods Ptah and Osiris and therefore sacred. When an Apis bull died, the body was embalmed and entombed with the great ceremony. As a result of his involvement, Prince Kha'emweset was incorporated into a mortuary cult which lasted until the Roman era. He was also adopted into several Roman myths and legends. (bio by: Iola)
