(also written Jewhetibew Fendy
) was an Ancient Egyptian
princess of the Thirteenth Dynasty
. She was the daughter of king Sobekhotep III
and of queen Neni
. Iuhetibu Fendy is known from two sources. She appears on a rock-cut stela in the Wadi el-Hol
and she appears on a stela from Abydos
now in the Louvre
On the stela she is shown together with her sister Dedetanqet (also written Dedetanuq) in front of the fertility god Min
. Her two names are written within a cartouche
(a ring that enclosures the name), a privilege that was given in this time very rarely to royal women and points to a special status of Iuhetibu Fendy. Iuhetibu Fendy bears a double name. The first name Iuhetibu was also the name of Iuhetibu Fendy's grandmother. Naming children after grandparents was not uncommon in Ancient Egypt.
Fendy is a nickname meaning "nose".
