Pharaoh Amenmeses was the 5th ruler of the Ninth Dynasty who succeeded Merneptah. His Egyptian name was Heqa-waset (which suggests the titles the "Fashioned by Amun, Ruler of Thebes"). His throne name was Men-Mi-Re Setep-En-Re, (which means the "Eternal like Re, Chosen by Re"). He ruled for three or four years and therefore very little is known about this king. The Tomb of Amenmeses (KV 10) is located in Valley of the Kings, in the West Bank of Luxor. At some later date, the tomb was usurped by Takhat (who held the titles "King's Daughter" and "Great Royal Wife") and another also by Queen Baketwerel. The tomb is entered through a ramp decorated on either side with graffiti as well as Greek, Arabic, and modern carvings. This ramp leads into three corridors (B, C, and D) with a shallow slope and a number of chambers (with some having a vaulted ceiling). The Burial Chamber contains the sarcophagus of the King. The tomb's decorations were mainly raised and sunk relief. All of this decoration, however, was erased and replaced with extensive alteration of decoration and painted plaster scenes were carved depicting Takhat and Baketwerel (of the Twentieth Dynasty).
Found inside the tomb's chambers were: fragments of the sarcophagus of Ramesses VI; three unidentified mummies (two of women and a man); canopic jars; the led of a red granite sarcophagus with carvings of the name of Takhat; as well as fragments of shabtis ( funerary figurines intended to act as substitutes for the deceased) figures from Seti I.
