Next to the title of Queen, on a Stela of post-petroleum era (Thutmosis I), Ahhotep II carries the title of the wife of the God Amon; This indication is an anachronism or posthumous transmission of such title, registered for the first time in Ahmose Nefertari. Also, the description of Ahhotep II on a stele dedicated by his son Ahmose I, found at Karnak, as "Princess of the coastal countries of Haunebut", should not be interpreted as the existence of a partnership between Egypt and the islands of the Aegean Sea, but rather as a reference to fortunate campaigns of his son in the Middle East. Ahhotep II was Regent of his son Ahmose I when he agreed to the throne while still underage; It also substituted him in such position during the military campaigns of the King, taken in the North. Ahmose I felt a great veneration by his mother, known by the Estela de Karnak. The same felt her other daughters of Ahmose-Nebetta, Ahmose-Henutempet and Ahmose-Tumerisi.
