(QV 38)Tomb of Queen Sitre' wife of Ramesses I

Interested to read that again, I'd like to find out more about her, genealogy wise.
Quite a good site, with a detailed map. Something I'm always collecting

Hi Sesen

I came accross this piece of information:
There is the 400 year stela erected by Ramses II. On that stela the wife of Pramesse (i.e. Ramses I) is given as Tjw.
Is this a name like Thuju?
Does this mean that the wife of Ramses I changed her name (just like her husband) upon ascending the throne?

The text of the stela can be found on touregypt.

Hi Anneke
this is where I'd love to have even a little knowledge of the language!
Since Ramses I and Sitre were already married and of an 'advanced' age when he became king, I expect another name along with the new status could be in order for her.

Both of their names make reference to Ra. I wonder if that was part of the continuing restoration of the old gods.

If they both changed their names, that will make it very hard to find out much personal info Crying or Very sad

I would expect so too, there seems to be a few nobles who changed their names from '....aten' style names, back to the old Gods. I forget their names now, but I've come across several - other than Tutankamun and Ankhesenamun naturally.
