The Ptolemaic pharaohs are known to have been buried in Alexandria, but none of their tombs have been found.

There are several others whose tombs have not been found. Queen Isetnofret, wife of Ramses II, comes to mind. They are not even sure if she was buried in the Valley of the Queens or possibly even in Saqqara.

Queen Ankhesenamen's tomb (wife of Tut) has never been found, nor that of her sister Queen Meritaten. There must be many more, but I don't have a complete list of burials that are still missing Very Happy
