Pebekkamen was an ancient Egyptian official during the reign of pharaoh Ramesses III of the 20th Dynasty. Along with the official Mesedsure and the secondary queen Tiye, he was a primary conspirator in the Harem conspiracy, a plot to overthrow Ramesses. The conspiracy, organised primarily by Tiye, intended to depose or assassinate Ramesses III and place Pentawere, her and Ramesses' son, onto the throne instead of his elder half-brother Ramesses IV.The Judicial Papyrus of Turin indicates that prior to his arrest, Pebekkamen had served as "chief of the chamber" to Ramesses. Like the names of many other conspirators mentioned in the Judicial Papyrus, "Pebekkamen" is actually a pejorative pseudonym reflecting his execrable behaviour; his true name is never revealed.
