Benerib was a Queen Consort of ancient Egypt from the First dynasty. Benerib's name means "sweet of heart".
Benerib was a wife of pharaoh Hor-Aha, but she was not the mother of his heir, Djer. The mother of king Djer is named as Khenthap, another wife of Hor-Aha. Benerib is thought to be the wife of Hor-Aha based on ivories found in her tomb at Abydos which show his name. A fragment of an ivory box with the names of Hor-Aha and Benerib was also found at Abydos and is now in the Boston Museum of Fine Arts.
Benerib's titles are not known, and neither is the identity of her parents.
Benerib was buried at Umm el-Qa'ab in tomb B14.
