Tomb KV35 in the Valley of the Kings (Luxor, Egypt) is the tomb of Amenhotep II.It was discovered by Victor Loret in March 1898.

It has a dog-leg shape, typical of the layout of early Eighteenth Dynasty tombs, but several features make this tomb stand out. The burial chamber is a rectangular shape and divided into upper and lower pillared sections, with the lower part holding the sarcophagus of the king. This style of burial chamber became 'standard' for royal burials in the later New Kingdom.

Later the tomb was used as a mummy cache. Mummies belonging to the following individuals were relocated here during the Third Intermediate Period and were identified by inscriptions on their burial wrappings: [ [http://www.thebanmappingproject.com/sites/browse_tomb_849.html Theban Mapping Project] - Site History] [ [http://www.narmer.pl/kv/kv35en.htm www.narmer.pl] - Valley of the Kings - KV35]

*Thutmose IV
*Amenhotep III
*Merneptah
*Seti II
*Siptah
*Ramesses IV
*Ramesses V
*Ramesses VI
*An anonymous female called the "Elder Woman" who has been identified by some as Tiye, the wife of Amenhotep II
*A prince, identified by some as Webensenu son of Amenhotep II whose canopic jars were found in the tomb or Thutmose IV, elder son of Amenhotep III and Tiye)
*A "Younger Lady" (In June 2003, British Egyptologist Joann Fletcher controversially claimed that this could be Nefertiti, wife of the "heretic pharaoh" Akhenaten. However DNA seems to now show it is actually the body of a man. Debate continues.)
