Even though the sarcophagus has fallen into ruin, doesn't it still look wonderful? Yes, it could well be a possibility that the owner of the discovered tomb, Isisnofret, is the daughter of Prince Khaemwaset :)

I wonder if they'll find out for sure?

Well Kawab, most of the proof at the tomb seems to point to Isisnofret being the long lost daughter of Prince Khaemwaset :)
After all, no Historian knew that Tutankhamun was/is the son of Akhnaton until the former's tomb was excavated, right :?:

Yes indeed. It never ceases to amaze me at the things they are discovering lying beneath the sand. What a wonderfully mysterious history Egypt has.

Couldn't agree with you more Meresankh :) I for one have also held the belief that Tut's tomb was a way forward to discovering even more fabulous and splendid untouched tombs in the Valley of the Kings. Somehow, methinks we haven't been looking in the right places 8)

I love the constant discoveries. I think that's what makes the world of Ancient Egypt so interesting to a lot of people -- that there is so much we don't know and consequently, so much we can still discover. :)

Well it's unlikely to be her grandmother as she would not have been described as a noble woman but as King's Wife nor would it likely have been Khamwaset's sister who married Meremptah as she would have been described as King's Daughter.
