Prince Rahotep was a Prince in ancient Egypt during the 4th dynasty. He was probably a son of Pharaoh Sneferu and his first wife, although Zahi Hawass suggests his father was Huni. Rahotep (R' htp) means "Ra is Satisfied". Rahotep’s wife was Nofret. Rahotep's older brother was Nefermaat I, and his younger brother was Ranefer. Rahotep died when he was young, and so his half-brother Khufu became pharaoh after Sneferu’s death.
