King's daughter, and king's wife, Meresankh.
The relation to the mastaba of Kawaab [Kawab] indicates that this is the same Meresankh as the King's daughter mentioned on the mastaba of Kahemten [Khemetnu] (Lep. 43 = [G 5210]) with Kawaab [Kawab] and another Hetepheres [Hetepheres II]. Apparently G 7210 is not Hetepheres the fact that G 7410 is Meresankh indicates that G 7310 is Hetepheres.
Two queens named Meresankh are known, Mariette Mast. D5 and Lepsius Giza 86. D5 is clearly later than Dynasty 5, probably Dynasty 5 (for use of [GLYPHS] c.f. the late mastabas (Dynasty 5 or 6) D14 and D18).
The Meresankh of Lepsius 86 has been supposed to be a queen of Khafre. If she's our Meresankh, we get her family as follows:
It is to be noted that G 7420 A, which should be the burial place of the husband of Meresankh, was never finished, and never used.
