Djedi

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Djedi was an Egyptian prince who lived during the 4th dynasty of Egypt. He was a son of Prince Rahotep and Nofret and had two brothers and three sisters.[1] He is depicted in the tomb chapels of his parents and has the title of "King's Acquaintance".[2]

In an ancient Egyptian tale, "Khufu and the Magicians", mention a magician called Djedi or Dedi, and it is possible that this person called Dedi was inspired by the real prince Djedi, Khufu's nephew.[3]
