Nakhtneith, whose name means “Neith is victorious”, held the queenly title of “Sceptre of Horus”. Her name was found on a stela in a subsidiary grave of the tomb of Djer at Umm el-Qa’ab, making it very likely that she was one of Djer’s wives.

Neither the names of her parents nor those of any children she may have had, are known.
