Meryre II

Superintendent of the Household of Queen Nefefertiti

 The Tomb of Meryre II (tomb number 2 at Akhetaten)

Along with that of Huya (tomb number 1), Meryre II's tomb was the last to be prepared and decorated at Akhetaten. Scenes show the royal family (his tomb is one of the few examples that depicts all six daughters of Akhenaten and Nefertiti) at the Durbar of Year 12.

Meryre II is shown at the Window of Appearences being rewarded by Akhenaten and Nefertiti.

Another unique scene in this tomb has Meryre II being rewarded by Smenkhkare and his wife Meritaten (although this is a sketch in black ink).
