What female royals from ancient Egypt do you think, may have had a tomb in the valley of the queens?

qv31-Queen no name
qv36-Princess, no name
qv40-Queen cartouche is blank
qv73-Princess no name thought to be from the 20th dynasty
qv75-Queen no name

Unnumbered tombs-
Tomb of Princess - from time of Amenhotep III. Position unknown.
Some say Tuy (Mut-tuy), wife of Seti I, mother of Ramesses II. Was burried West of Tomb 66


I know I've missed a lot, but it's around midnight here, so my mind isn't working as good Confused

I believe QV75 belongs to Queen Henutmira - Sister/Wife to Ramses II - I'm not sure how that's known though, because I didn't think they were any names contained in the tomb. Confused

I have a page about the Queens VAlley on my website Very Happy
http://euler.slu.edu/Dept/Faculty/bart/egyptianhtml/tombs/QueensValley.htm

Princesses and Queens:
QV17 - Merytre, King's Daughter and Wermeryotes, King's Daughter (18th Dynasty)
QV31 - A Princess-Queen (19th dynasty)
QV33 - Queen Tanedjemy early 19th Dynasty This tomb dates to the early 19th dynasty, but this Queen was unknown previous to the discovery of the tomb in the 1980s.
QV34 - Anonymous princess-queen (early 19th Dynasty)
QV36 - King's Daughter
QV38 - Queen Sitre  God's Wife, King's Great Wife, Lady of the Two Lands, Mistress of Upper and Lower Egypt.  (19th Dynasty)
QV40 - A Queen, cartouche blank  (19th Dynasty)
QV 47 - Princess Ahmose King's Daughter, King's Sister.  (17th Dynasty) Daughter of Sekenenre-Taa (II) and Sit-djehuty
QV 51 - Queen Isis (Ta-hemdjeret), King's Great Wife, King's Mother, God's Wife.
QV52- Queen Tyti  King's Daughter, King's Sister, King's Wife, King's Mother,  Ramesside (20th Dynasty)
QV60 - Queen Nebettawy, King's Daughter of his Body, King's Great Wife, Lady of the Two Lands, Mistress of Upper and Lower Egypt. (19th Dynasty) Daughter of Ramses II and Queen Nefertari. Nebettawy served as her father's Great Wife later in his reign. This tomb was transformed into a chapel during the Coptic period.
QV66 - Queen Nefertari, King's Great Wife, Lady of the Two Lands, Mistress of Upper and Lower Egypt.  (19th dynasty)
QV68 - Queen Merytamun, King's Daughter of his Body, King's Great Wife, Lady of the Two Lands, Mistress of Upper and Lower Egypt. (19th Dynasty) Daughter of Rameses II and Queen Nefertari. Served as one of her father's Great Wives after her mother's death in ca. Year 24
QV71 -Queen Bint-anath, King's Daughter of his Body, King's Great Wife, Lady of the Two Lands, Mistress of Upper and Lower Egypt  (19th Dynasty) Eldest daughter of Ramesses II and Queen Isetnofret. She served as her father's Great Wife after her mother's death. Bintanath had at least one (unnamed) daughter who is depicted in the tomb.
QV73 - Queen Henuttawy?,  (possibly dated to the 20th Dynasty)
QV74 - Queen (Dua-)Tentopet  Great King's mother and King's wife. (20th Dynasty)
QV75 -Queen Henutmire, King's Daughter, King's Great Wife (19th Dynasty) Probably a daughter of Sety I and hence a sister-wife of Ramses II. A trough of her coffin was usurped by Harsiese for his internment in Medinet Habu (some 250 years later?).
QV76 - Merytre, King's Daughter (18th Dynasty)
QV80 - Queen (Mut-)Tuy, King's Wife, King's Mother, God's Wife (19th Dynasty)

Other Queens who may have been buried there include Queen Isetnofret, Maat-Hor-Neferure, and the second Hittite Queen from the time of Ramesses II.

They have found funerary equipment (but no tomb) of a King's Wife Henut and a Great Royal wife named Nebetnehat. I don't think these ladies are known from any other source.

Queen Tanedjemy, never heard of her? I guess she married either rameses I or Seti?
QV40, now that could be a tomb of one of many queens of Rameses II
QV 34 the princess-queen from the earlu 19th dynasty is a bit mysterious? do we know of Seti having any sisters? Of rameses I? Rameses II only seems to have had Tia?
QV30 again could hold a daughter-queen of Rameses II?
QV58 could be Ankhasenamun (a stretch I know)
QV 56 and 57, are unfinished tombs from the 19th dynasty, I'm stumped on who these tombs were originally built for.
QV 61..65 the users of this tomb originally could have been daughters or relatives of Nefertari? I only say this because Nefertari's tomb and one of her daughters tombs are beside these Laughing not much to go on.

Actually I think "formative" is kind of accurate. No one likes compiling this information like anneke, and her lists are ever growing. Trust me, it's worth saving them to your Favorites file. Wink
