About Meresankh . ., IV

Meresankh IV was a queen of Egypt in the 5th dynasty. Her name means "she loves life". While some sources consider that her husband is unknown,[2] other sources suggest her husband was Pharaoh Menkauhor Kaiu.[3][4] It is also possible that Meresankh was the wife of Djedkare Isesi.[5]

Meresankh IV may have had sons: Raemka and Kaemtjenent. The family relationship between Meresankh and Raemka and Kaemtjenent is based on the general dating of their monuments, mastabas in Saqqara. It is possible that Kaemtjenent may have been a son of Djedkare Isesi rather than Menkauhor Kaiu.[3]
