Papyrus Maiherperi

Maiherperi – mAi-Hr-pri
Kings Valley KV36, rediscovered in 1899 by Victor Loret
Also known as Maiherpra, Maiherpera, Maihirpre and Maiherpri

Maiherperi was a nobleman of Nubian descent. He probably lived during the reign of Thutmose IV, and was given the honour of a burial in the royal necropolis. His name can be translated as Lion of the Battlefield. He died in his twenties and is depicted as a Nubian on his Book of the Dead

Maiherperi served as Fan-bearer on the Right Side of the King. He was one of the first during the New Kingdom to use this title, literally he was at the pharaoh’s side, probably as an advisor or bodyguard. The same title was also used later in the New Kingdom to designate the viceroys of Kush
