Tomb QV44

The Egyptiana Emporium

QV44 is the tomb of Khaemwaset, a principal son of Ramesses III, in the Valley of the Queens. Khaemwaset was a sem-priest of the god Ptah at Memphis. He is depicted in the tomb with his father, Ramesses III (below).

One of the prince’s canopic jars resides in the Cairo Museum, and a mummy which is believed to be Khaemwaset himself is in the Museo Egizio Turin. His sarcophagus is also in Turin.

QV44 is one of the most beautifully decorated tombs in the Valley of the Queens.
