Egyptian Princess Fawzia Fuad

During the Third Intermediate Period, the title of King’s son included the name of their father, which does make it a little clearer. This was perhaps in part because the royal names had become so formulaic and repetitive that even the ancient Egyptians were having trouble keeping track of who was who. There are also, rather confusingly, a significant number of people with the title King’s Son of Ramesses – but no pharaoh named Ramesses during that period! It is likely that this was either a religious title referring to the mortuary cult of Ramesses II or III, or it simply signified the holder had Ramesside blood, but we cannot be sure.
