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.

  • Unknown Female (known as the Elder Lady who has been identified by some as Tiye. Others believe this could belong to Hatshepsut-Meryetre, Amenhotep II’s mother, or Akhenaten's Great Royal Wife Nefertiti)[citation needed]
  • Unknown Prince (Identified by some as either Webensenu son of Amenhotep II whose canopic jars were found in the tomb or Thutmose, elder son of Amenhotep III and Tiye)
  • 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.)[citation needed]

  • Unknown Male mummy on a boat which was destroyed in 1901 by tomb robbers. This has been claimed to be Setnakht as his coffin was in the tomb. But the arms on this mummy were not crossed on the chest as would have been expected of a king and this identification therefore seems doubtful. Therefore perhaps this could in fact be Webensenu.
  • Two skulls were also found in the well chamber, one of which could have belonged to Amenhotep II’s mother Hatshepsut Meryetre as a cane found in the tomb indicates was perhaps buried here. The whereabouts of these skulls does now not appear to be known.
  • An additional mummified arm was also found with the three mummies in the side chamber so could belong to one of these skulls, the body in the boat or another individual.

Setnakhte (also Sethnakhte or Setnakht) was the first Pharaoh (1186 BC-1183 BC) of the Twentieth Dynasty of the New Kingdom of Ancient Egypt and father of Ramesses III. Originally, he was believed to have enjoyed a reign of only 2 Years based upon his Year 2 Elephantine stela but...

Loret found these mummies neatly arranged but more than half naked with their bandages lying in tatters all around them, whereas the nine mummies in the side- room appeared, for the most part, to be wrapped up the way the restorers of the 21st Dynasty had left them.
KV35 presumably remained re-sealed until Gaston Maspero, another Frenchman who had taken Loret's place as director of the Service des Antiquities, came to remove some of the mummies in 1901.
Because the cadavers and their containers were lined up in such close proximity in their side-chamber, [3] the Egyptologist wrote that he decided to take down a wall of stones that had partly sealed the doorway and to have the mummies and receptacles carried into the "grande salle" of the tomb.

Molti di voi ricorderanno la vicenda risalente a qualche anno fa, quando Johanne Fletcher affermò con certezza di essersi trovata di fronte alla mummia di Nefertiti.
E consiste nella valutazione che queste tre mummie, debitamente nascoste in questa stanza della KV35, in origine si trovassero nella KV55.
Sulla base delle mie conoscenze a riguardo della KV55, non rendendomi conto delle sue effettive dimensioni e di quanto potesse contenere, posso immaginare che davvero la medesima fosse stata utilizzata a mo' di deposito, dopo una prima funzione di tomba individuale.
