Prince Prehirwenemef

Fanbearer on the King’s Right hand, 1st Lieutenant of the Army, King’s Son of his Body, Master of the Horses, First charioteer of His Majesty.

Prehirwenemef was a son of Ramses and Nefertari. He is the third son in the processions shown on the different monuments. Amenhirkhepeshef was his older brother. He had younger brothers by the names of Meryre and Mery-Atum. Prehirwenemef grew up with at least two full sisters: Merytamen and Henuttawy.

He is depicted in the triumph that followed Kadesh. On a Karnak statue base there is mention of a woman named Wadjyt-kha’ti.
Prehirwenemef is not depicted on the facade of the great temple of Abu Simbel. He is however shown inside in war related scenes with his brothers Amenhirkhepeshef and Ramesses riding a chariot into battle. Prehirwenemef is depicted on the facade of the smaller temple of Abu Simbel. Small statues depicting Prehirwenemef are shown flanking Ramesses II.
