General, later King, Haremhab.

General Haremhab (the name means "The God Horus is in Festival") was the most important military commander during the reign of king Tutankhamun.

His tomb was built at Saqqara, a large cemetery to the west of the city of Mennufer.

When, as an old man, Haremhab himself became king in 1323 BC, a new tomb was made for him in the royal cemetery in the Valley of the Kings, in the south of Egypt. He was buried there in 1295 BC.
