Amanikhatashan was a ruling queen of Kush (c. 62-c. 85 CE). As a Queen, her proper title was "Kandake". Her pyramid is at Meroe in the Sudan. She was preceded by Amanitenmemide (c. 50–62) and succeeded by Teritnide.

Amanikhatashan provided aid to Rome during the First Jewish–Roman War (66-73 CE), sending cavalry and likely also archers.
