  1. Amenhotep was the High Priest of Amun towards the end of the Twentieth dynasty of Egypt, serving under Ramesses IX, Ramesses X and Ramesses XI. He was also vizier, or great confidant, to his master and was first prophet of Amun-resonther. He was the son of Ramessesnakht, the previous high priest of Amun.
  2. Amenhotep was an Ancient Egyptian official with the title king's son of Kush. In this function he was the main administrator of the Nubiaian provinces. Amenhotep was perhaps in office under Thutmosis IV. He appears with his main title in a rock inscription on the island of Sehel. Here he also bears the titles overseer of the cattle of Amun, overseer of works in Upper and Lower Egypt, chief of the stalls of his majesty, overseer of the southern foreign lands and king's scribe. The inscription is not dated by a king's name. However, there is a stela in the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford belonging to a overseer of the cattle of Amun and confident of Kush, perhaps belonging to the same person. The stela shows the names of king Thutmosis IV. In case bot monuments belong to the same person, Amenhotep was in office under this king.
