Waatetkhethor, the eldest daughter of King Teti and wife of the vizier Mereruka, is the only woman buried in the Teti Cemetery who owned a separate chapel and burial chamber in her husband's mastaba. She held a very elevated status and her son, Meryteti, was described as 'eldest son of the king of his body' (see Part I of this publication). The book examines her special position and documents all the scenes and inscriptions in her chapel, both in line drawings and colour photographs, and produces architectural drawings of her tomb.
