KV46 Yuya and Thuyu

Local nameيويا و ثيو
LocationLuxor, Egypt

Tomb KV46 in the Valley of the Kings is the tomb of Yuya and his wife Tjuyu, the parents of Queen Tiye, the wife of Amenhotep III, and King Ay. It was discovered in February 1905 by James E. Quibell. Quibell was sponsored by Theodore M. Davis, who published an account of the excavation in 1907.

KV 46 consists of a staircase leading down to a further descending corridor and a unique burial chamber. The walls of the tomb are not decorated and were probably never meant to be: the walls are unplastered and were not smoothed.
