Harhotep was asking about Nefermaat and his children.
Some sites claim some 12 sons and 3 daughters.

I don't have Dodson and Hilton at my finger tips right now, so the best I could do on short notice is to find some scenes from the tomb Smile

Here's Itet with one of her sons:



Her name Itet appears in front of her lower legs.

The son is called Ankh-er-imi-khenet (I have no idea if that is transliterated correctly)



4 more sons:
Wehemka
Shepseska
Ankh-her-sheretef (?)
Nebkhenet

Another known son is Hemiunu.

I really must thank you for your question. I found all names of their children, and thank you for pictures. I really don't know where you find them, but they are beautiful.

Here is list of Nefermaat's children:

Princess Djefatsen
Princess Isesu
Princess Pageti
Prince Isu
Prince Teta
Prince Itisen
Prince Khentimeresh
Prince Inkaef
Prince Serfka
Prince Wehemka
Prince Shepseska
Prince Kakhent
Prince Ankhersheretef
Prince Ankherfenedjef
Prince Buneb
Prince Shepsesneb
Prince Nebkhenet
Prince Hemiunu

I found that they really had 3 daughters, but many more sons - 15! On some pages there is written that Nefermaat had no 15 sons, but 15 children all together.

I found them on the inetrnet by googeling itet and nefermaat (I think that's where they came up Smile )

Prince Hemiunu Likely the same person who would later become Vizier. Hemiunu was buried in Giza in Mastaba 4000.
Quote:
G4000 Hemiunu Time of Khufu
King’s son of his body, Chief Justice and Vizier, etc. Son of Prince Nefermaat and his wife Itet, and thus grandson of Seneferu and Hetepheres I.
A tatue of Hemiunu is now in the Pelizaeus Museum in Hildesheim. Hemiunu is depicted in a limestone statue, ca 1.5 meters high.
"[1] Hereditary Count, Vizier), Sealbearer of the King of Lower Egypt, Guardian of Nekhen, Mouth of all (people) of Pe"
"[2] Priest of Bastet, Priest of Shesemtet, Priest of the Ram of Mendes"
"[3] Staff of Apis, Staff of the White Bull, who loves his lord"
"[4] Eldest of the Palace, 'Greatest of the Five' (in) the House of Thoth, who loves his lord, the Sole Friend"
"[5] Overseer of the Royal Scribes, ...(?), Director of the Singers of Upper and Lower Egypt, Overseer of all royal works, Bodily Son of the King, Hem-iunu."
The "Overseer of all Royal Works" has lead people to believe that Hemiunu was involved in the construction of the Pyramids.

I have seen the names of Buneb, Shepsesneb and Nebkhenet on the internet, but I have not been able to find those names in the literature.

BTW there is a really good page about Nefermaat's mastaba on digital egypt:
http://www.digitalegypt.ucl.ac.uk/meydum/nefermaat/index.html

If you click on the individual chapels etc, there are links to the tomb decorations and you might be able to find the depictions of the children.

I hope Aset doesn't mind me sharing some info she shared with me:

Your first image shows a boy named anx-r-fnD(=f) 'ankh-er-fenedj-(ef)' ("Life is on (his) nose"). See Ranke 17, second variant.

The name of the third boy (pic bilow) is anx-r-Sr.t=f 'ankh-er-sheret-ef' ("Life is on his nose"). See Ranke 18.



The last name is kA(=j)-xn.t(=j) 'Ka(i)-khent(i)' ("(My) ka is before (me)"), see Ranke 19:

I hope this link works.
http://www.digitalegypt.ucl.ac.uk/meydum/nefermaat/nefermaatpl.xvii.html

It's one of the scenes from the chapel of Nefermaat.
On the bottom at the right hand side there is an image of Princess Djefatsen and there is an image of Princess Pargeti there as well I think.

I wonder if Buneb is a mistaken transliteration of the name of the boy on the left with the baboon behind him. I think the three glyphs by him could be mistaken for "Buneb" (one would have to misidentify the ox leg as a human leg and the knife for a neb basket). I'm pretty sure the name is not Buneb though. I think that may be Wehemka?

I must again thank you on your informations! Smile

You wrote this "Princess Pargeti". Was what her name - Pageti or Pargeti, or maybe the both?
Also I wanna ask something about Nefertkau. On yor page I found that Nefertkau, dughter of Seneferu, bore Nefermaat II. So, if I understand, there where two Nefermaats - one who is son of Sneferu and one who is son of Nefertkau and so nephew of Nefermaat I?

Also, prince Ankhhaf had a wife Hetepheres. Was she Hetepheres II or some princess?

Thank you of all. Very Happy

Sorry, It's Pageti (no r). Not sure where that came from ... Very Happy

FOr as far as I know Nefertkau had a son Nefermaat II.
Nefermaat II is buried in Giza:
G7060 Nefermaat II Time of Seneferu – Khufu?
King’s son, Hereditary prince, Overlord of Nekheb, etc. Vizier of Khephren.
Son of Nefertkau I (G7050) and grandson of Seneferu.

I looked at http://gizapyramids.org/
And under G 7060 it mentions that this mastaba belongs to Nefermaat (II). In the tomb people mentioned are:
Attested: Snefrukhaf (G 7070)
Attested: Nefretkau (G 7050)
Attested: Tadihor[...] (in G 7060)

If you go to http://gizapyramids.org/ and do the search you will find linked articles you can download.

For instance:
Reisner, George A. "Nefertkauw, the Eldest Daughter of Sneferuw." Zeitschrift für Ägyptische Sprache und Altertumskunde 64 (1929), pp. 97-99.

I think Ankhaf's wife Hetepheres would be some other lady. She is a King's Daughter. So she may very well be a daughter of Sneferu.
That would make her a (half?) sister of Ankhaf.
(According to Dodson and Hilton)
