Or this Isisnofret may have been one of Ramses II's daughters or one of his approximately 200 wives, the archaeologists said.
Genetic tests may help unlock Isisnofret's identity.
"After making DNA tests, we will realize who it is ," said Mohamed El Ashry, an Egyptologist who works with the Waseda University team.
Khaemwaset's "mummy is at the Egyptian Museum, and Ramses II's mummy is also at the Egyptian Museum" in Cairo, El Ashry said—making both readily available for DNA testing.
The University of Chicago's Johnson believes Khaemwaset built tombs for his whole family in the area and expects the Japanese team to find other family members.
