Well, no, then our positions can't be similar because one of the points of my paper [and in the title] was "two Theban princes". In my view, Ahmose-Sipair was not the same Ahmose as was the son of Seqenenre. As far as I know, Ahmose-Sipair is associated with the reign of Amenhotep I. That king seems to have been his father.
Therefore, Ahmose-Sipair cannot have been the father of Thutmose I. Do you know of evidence that points to Sipair as being associated with the reign of Seqenenre?

But, yes, I agree that Mutnofret was probably a sister of Amenhotep I. The fact that the future Thutmose I was permitted to marry her is significant in itself.
