Tomb of Tausert

Tausert (who may or may not have been a pharaoh in her own right) is bured in oneof the longest tombs in the valley. She was the wife of Set II from the 19th Dynasty. Like many of the others, this tomb has been open since antiquity.

Her tomb was taken over by Sekhnakht, the first ruler of the 20th Dynasty. He removed her remains and enlarged the tomb for himself. There are two complete burial chamber - the first for Tausert and a later, deeper one for Sekhnakht.
