The tomb of a previously unknown Egyptian queen was discovered in a pyramid necropolis southwest of Cairo, officials said yesterday (Jan. 4).

The monarch is believed to be the wife of Pharaoh Neferefre, also known as King Raneferef, who ruled approximately 4,500 years ago. The queen’s tomb was found in Neferefre’s funeral complex at Abu Sur, a necropolis dedicated to the pharaohs of the Fifth Dynasty of the Old Kingdom (2494-2345 B.C.), archaeologists from the Czech Institute of Egyptology said in a statement.

It’s the “first time we have discovered the name of this queen who had been unknown before the discovery of her tomb,” antiquities minister Mamdouh al-Damaty said in a statement.
