Pharaoh’s daughter. Three Egyptian princesses, daughters of Pharaohs, are mentioned in the Bible:—

1. The preserver of Moses, daughter of the Pharaoh who first oppressed the Israelites. Ex. 2:5-10. Osborn thinks her name was Thouoris, daughter of Rameses II, others that her name was Merrhis. (b.c. 1531.)

2. Bithiah wife of Mered, an Israelite, daughter of a Pharaoh of an uncertain age, probably of about the time of the exodus. 1 Chron. 4:18. [Pharaoh, No. 5.]

3. A wife of Solomon. 1 Kings 3:1; 7:8; 9:24. [Pharaoh, 7.] (b.c. 1000.)
