Tasenetnofret was an Ancient Egyptian goddess. She was the consort of Horus when he was Har-wer. Har-wer was the name of Horus at a more elderly age. Horus reached maturity at this stage in life, and at this time, Tasenetnofret became his companion. He got revenge for his father by overcoming Seth. He then became the king of Egypt. In Kom Ombo, which is northern Egypt, Har-wer was thought of as the son of the god Re, and therefore was identical with the sky god, Shu. His image is that of a falcon.
