Anen


Anen

Anen was an Ancient Egyptian official during the late Eighteenth dynasty of Egypt. He was the son of Yuya and Tjuyu and the brother of Queen Tiye, the wife of Pharaoh Amenhotep III. Under the rule of his brother in law, Anen became the Chancellor of Lower Egypt, Second Prophet of Amun, sem-priest of Heliopolis, and acquired the title Divine Father.

Anen is depicted in a notable surviving statue (Turin 5484), now in Turin Italy. Inscriptions on Anen's own monuments do not mention the fact that he was Amenhotep III's brother-in-law. [David O'Connor & Eric Cline, Amenhotep III: Perspectives on his reign, University of Michigan Press, 1998, p.6] However, this relationship is established by a short but clear reference to him in his mother Tjuyu's coffin, which stated that her son Anen was the second prophet of Amun. [O'Connor & Cline, op. cit., pp.5-6] He was buried in his tomb in the Theban Necropolis, on the west bank of the Nile opposite Thebes.
