Deceased

Cause of death

Possibly complications from a broken leg and possibly malaria

Born c. 1345 BC and died c. 1327 about aged 18.
He is thought to have taken the throne aged 9.
Albert Zink from the institute of Mummies and the Icemand studied the DNA and found that King Tut was born after his sister and father had a relationship.
Following his fathers disastrous reign, Tutankhamun's grandfather King Ay made him Pharaoh, changed his name from Tutankhaten to Tutankhamun to illustrate Aten was out and King of Gods, Amun was in. Priests were re-employed, religion restored and temples re-opened. King Ay continued to make the decisions and became the new Pharaoh following Tutankhamun's death.
Incestuous marriage was normal in the 18th Dynasty Egyptian royal family. Tutankhamun married his half sister, who later married her grandfather, her father and another brother. His parents were full siblings. This led to problematic genetic disorders and disabilities. It is thought that Tutankhamun had Koehler's bone disease and a club foot.
His tomb was discovered on 4th November 1922 by English archaeologist Howard Carter and the Earl of Carnarvon. He was the only Pharaoh left to have not had his tomb discovered. Howard spent years looking for it. Lord Carnarvon who was interested in ancient Egypt paid for the expeditions. Unusually the tomb was the most intact and complete tomb ever to be found. He was buried with his two stillborn daughters.
