Egyptian Princess Fawzia Fuad

The title Hekret Nesu is sometimes translated as “Royal Ornament” and has been taken as a reference to a concubine or mistress of the king. Yet, many of the holders of this title were actually the wives of high officials with no sexual connection with the king. Another possible translation is “Acquaintance of the King”. There are also numerous people referred to as khered en kap (“Child of the Kap”) some of whom were the offspring of the king, but others were noble children or the children of foreign vassals educated alongside the children of the king.
