She was born early in her father's reign, before the royal family moved to the new capital established by her father, Akhetaten. She was shown beside her mother in reliefs carved into the Hut-Benben, a temple devoted exclusively to Nefertiti. She also appears—along with her parents and younger sister Meketaten;on the boundary stelae designating the boundaries of the new capital.[1]
During Akhenaten's reign she was the most frequently depicted and mentioned of the six daughters. Her figure appears on paintings in temples, tombs, and private chapels. She is shown not only on the pictures showing the family life of the pharaoh, which were typical of the Amarna Period, but on official ceremonies too. She also is mentioned in diplomatic letters, by the name Mayati.[1]
Meritaten's titles include Great Royal Wife, which can indicate either marriage to her father or to Akhenaten's co-ruler Smenkhkare, whom some believe was her (half-)uncle or half-brother, although a simpler explanation for the title may be that Meritaten simply assumed her mother's duties and office of "Great Royal Wife".
Meritaten's name seems to replace that of another royal lady in several places, among them in the Northern Palace and in the Maru-Aten. This had been misinterpreted as evidence of Nefertiti's disgrace and banishment from the royal court, but more recently the erased inscriptions turned out to be the name of Kiya, one of Akhenaten's secondary wives, disproving that interpretation.[1]
According to some scholars such as J.P. Allen, Ankhkheperure Smenkhkare ruled together with Meritaten, but in the year following Akhenaten's death Smenkhkare himself died. These Egyptologists suggest that Meritaten was the 'king's daughter' Akenkeres who is recorded in Manetho's Epitome to have assumed the throne for herself as the female king Neferneferuaten. Neferneferuaten is assigned a reign of 2 years and 1 month and is placed in Manetho's account as the immediate predecessor of Rathothis, who is believed to be Tutankhamun.

Prinsessan Baketaton

Princess Beketaten (aka Baketaten, Beketaton...), although her parentage is still debated, was in all probability the youngest daughter of Pharaoh Amenhotep III and Queen Tiye.
Her name, which means, "Haidmaiden of Aten," suggests that when she was born, steps towards her elder brother's future reforms were already being taken.
At Amarna, images of Princess Beketaten are closely associated with Queen Tiye, which is the reason why many feel that she was a daughter of the senior royal couple rather than Nefertiti and Akhenaten. She is called a 'King's Daughter', but never, like all of Nefertiti's girls, called 'Kings's Daughter born of the King's Great Wife, Nefernefruaten-Nefertiti,' so the assumption that she may have been the last child of Tiye and Amenhotep III seems to be a likely conclusion.
Her time and manner of death are not known, as around the time of Tiye's death, she ceases to be mentioned.
Princess Beketaten's only known title was 'King's Daughter of His Body'

Prinsessan Nebetah

Princess Nebetah was apparently the fourth daughter of Pharaoh Amenhotep III and Queen Tiye. She is not as well known as her sisters. Her name, which means 'Lady of the Palace' or 'Great Lady', was also a title given to queens. Both her elder sister Henut-Taneb and Nebetah were given names that were traditionally titles of Egyptian queens. Perhaps, during the period in which these two princesses were born, Amenhotep III was trying to keep from honoring any gods in his daughters' names? She is never called a 'King's Wife' and it doesn't seem that she was married to Amenhotep III. Due to her lack of presence on many monmuments that the elder daughters of Tiye appear on, it has been suggested that she was significantly younger than Sitamen, Isis, and Sitamen. Nebetah's ultimate fate, like those of her sisters, is not known.
Nebetah's only known title was 'King's Daughter Whom He Loves.'

Prinsessan Henut-Taneb

Princess Henut-Taneb was either the second or third daughter of Pharoah Amenhotep III and Queen Tiye. Her name, meaning 'Mistress of All Lands', was a title often held by queens. Like her sisters Sitamen and Isis, Henut-Taneb may very well have been one of the wives of herfather, Amenhotep III. Although she was never refered to as a "King's Wife," her name is found in a cartouche and she has other titles that suggest that she was one of the many consorts of Amenhotep III. Her fate, like so many of the others, is not known.
Princess Henut-Taneb's Titles:
Consort of Horus Who is in His Heart
Great One in the Palace
King’s Daughter
King’s Daughter Whom He Loves

Prinsessan Isis

Princess Isis, the second or third daughter of Pharaoh Amenhotep III and Queen Tiye (it is not clear if Isis or her sister, Henut-Taneb, is older). She is also called Aset or Iset, and was named after the Goddess Isis, the Mistress of Magic and the Goddess whose name means 'throne.' Like her sister Sitamen (and most probably Henut-Taneb as well) Isis was one of the wives of her father. Unlike Henut-Taneb, she am specifically referred to as a 'King's Wife', and her name is inscribed in a cartouche, a perogative of high ranking royal consorts. After the death of Amenhotep III, she fades from view, what happened to this princess is unknown.
Princess Isis' Titles:
King's Wife
King’s Daughter
King’s Daughter Whom He Loves

Princessan Drottning Sitamun

Princess-Queen Sitamen (aka: Sitamun, Sitamon, Satamon) was the eldest daughter of Queen Tiye and pharaoh Amenhotep III. Her name means “Daughter of Amun”. Although it appears Sitamen was the eldest princess, there is no evidence that she was one of the wives of her brother, Akhenaten. His Great Royal Wife Nefetiti appears to have been his cousin and a niece of Tiye. Sitamen seems to have been her father's favorite daughter and she held a special position in his court, 'King's Chief Daughter'. Later in the 30th year of Amenhotep III's reign, Princess Sitamen became one of her father's queens. She even received the title "King's Great Wife" even though her mother, Queen Tiye, was still alive. Sitamen possessed her own household palace and estates, but never took precedence over Tiye, however. Sitamen's sisters Isis and Henut-Taneb also seem to have married their father. These unions may have been symbolic, but they could have been consumated unions as well. Perhaps Tiye encouraged her husband to their daughters to mirrors some of the relationships of the gods.
Princess-Queen Sitamen has been suggested as a possible candidate as the mother of Smenkhkare and Tutankhamen, but no evidence exists (either to support or deny) that she bore her father-husband any children. One of Amenhotep III's high officials named Huy retired to Sitamen's estate as her “High Steward". Many of images of Sitamen show her wearing a lotus crown with royal cobra or gazelle with a short nubian style wig. It has been postulated that Sitamen was the God's Wife of Amun during Amenhotep's reign. The most famous are two wooden chairs that were in her grandparents' -- Yuya and Thuya's -- tomb. A mummy found with the Elder Lady (who is thought to be Queen Tiye) might be Princess-Queen Sitamen's remains.
