A King's Wife from the Fifth dynasty of Egypt
Possibly a wife of Pharaoh Menkauhor Kaiu
Buried in a mastaba in Saqqara

Khuit I was an Egyptian queen who lived in the 5th dynasty of Egypt.

Biography

She was buried in mastaba D 14 at Saqqara. Khuit I has been suggested as a possible wife of Pharaoh Menkauhor Kaiu, but this is far from certain.[1] Another queen by the name of Meresankh IV is more commonly suggested as the wife of Menkauhor Kaiu and thus may have been a contemporary of Khuit I.[2][3]

Titles

Queen Khuit I held the titles Great one of the hetes-sceptre (wrt-hetes), She who sees Horus and Seth (m33t-hrw-stsh), Great of Praises (wrt-hzwt), King’s Wife, his beloved (hmt-nisw meryt.f), Attendant of the Great One (khtt-wr), King’s Daughter (s3t-niswt), and King’s Wife (hmt-nisw).[4]
