Prince of Egypt, son of Pharaoh Snefru, Ankhhaf became the Architect to his half Brother, Pharaoh Khufu, and his Nephew, Pharaoh Khafre. It appears that Prince Ankhhaf took on an architectural role of the Great Pyramid at the Giza Necropolis during its later stages as a Vizier as well as an Architect.
