Iset, also known as Aset or Isis, was an Egyptian princess during the 14th century BCE. She was not a very significant figure in Egyptian history, so we don’t know much about her. She was the daughter of Amenhotep III and his Great Royal Wife, Tiye. Her brother would go on to become Pharaoh Thutmose I.

She would become of her father’s many wives, around Year 34 of Amenhotep’s reign, and this was not uncommon. Some of her sisters would also go on to marry their father. Their mother remained as Amenhotep III’s Great Royal Wife, basically his main wife. Iset’s fate is unknown, as there was no mention of her in historical records following Amenhotep’s death.
