Who was Iynefer and what was he doing in his life? Were there many Iynefers?

That's some questions about this misterious person.

Iynefer (nefer = "beautiful") was an Egyptian prince, a son of pharaoh Sneferu and unknown woman. He was a half-brother of Khufu and uncle of Khufu's architect Hemiunu. Iynefer's grandparents were Huni and Meresankh I. [1] - This is all from wikipedia.

Are anybody knoes something more about Iynefer? Maybe about his wife or children (if he married someone)?

Thanks for any help! Very Happy

Iynefer: Husband of Princess Nefretkau (G 7820), possibly the daughter of Queen Meresankh II.

Iynefert: Judge and Inspector of scribes, Overseer of the Pyramid of Menkaure, Scribe of the treasury of the estate ‘Mansion of Menkaure’, etc. Dyn. V or VI

There are another couple of Iinefer(t), Iinefret, Iynefert, etc (variations of the same name) found in different inscriptions in Giza. None seem to be very high ranking? One's a woman Very Happy

A man named Iynefret appears on false door (Cairo JE 51297) inscribed for Seneb (no titles)
A man named Iynefret appears twice in chapel relief in tomb of Kaninisut [I] (owner of G 2155) (Butcher)
A man named Iynefret appears in chapel relief in tomb of Wehemka (owner of D 117) (no title)
A man named Iynefret appears twice in chapel relief in tomb of Seshemnefer [I] (owner of G 4940) as ka priest.

A woman called Iyneferet is mentioned in G 2172, wife of Niankhkhufu. She's a royal acquaintance.

Iynefer (A) was probably a son of Sneferu. Iynefer had a tomb in Dashur, and parts of the tomb are now located in the Cairo Museum.
He had the title King's Son.

Dodson and Hilton, The Complete Royal Families of Ancient Egypt, pg 58.

Verner does not say much about the mastabas of the royal sons in Dashur.
Can't find much in Lepsius' Denkmahler either.

Iynefer means "beautiful/good one has come".

Iynefer B was maybe a son of Khufu and so nephew to Iynefer A.
