King Tut Boy King
Probably the most famous of all the Egyptian Pharaohs was King Tut or Tutankhamen. Leading to his fame is the fact that his tomb was found in almost perfect condition.
After reading about King Tut on a temple wall, Howard Carter found the tomb after five years of searching.
King Tut died in January of 1343 B.C. and it was first thought he was killed by a close associate because his skull had been bashed in, however it has been now determined he died from gangrene as a result of him breaking his leg a few days before his death.
The Pharaoh began his reign at the age of 3 and ruled until the ripe old age of 19, obviously many of the decisions made, especially during his earlier years, were made by someone else.
Many rumors circulated concerning the boy king, one of which was the tomb was cursed and anyone who disturbed the remains would reach an untimely death. After Howard Carter had discovered the tomb, him and all of his party had died within five years.
