Meritamen was a daughter of Great Pharaoh Ramesses and his favourite wife Nefertari. She appears as the fourth daughter in the list of daughters in Abu Simbel and had at least four brothers: Amun-her-khepeshef, Pareherwenemef, Meryre and Meryatum, as well as a sister named Henuttawy.
Meritamen may have had more brothers and sisters, but these five are
known from the facade of Queen Nefertari’s temple in Abu Simbel.
Around the time her mother died (around the 24th or 25th regnal year), Meritamen became Great Royal Wife to her father, along with her half-sister Bintanath.
