Takhat was the mother of ancient Egyptian Pharaoh Ramesses IX of the 20th Dynasty.

It is likely that she was the wife of Montuherkhepeshef, a son of Ramesses III.[1]

A chamber of Amenmesse's tomb KV10 was probably usurped and redecorated for her. Parts of a mummy thought to be hers were found.[2]
