Although King Tut may not be one of the greatest pharaohs in the history of ancient Egypt (in fact scientists knew only so little about him before his tomb was discovered), his tomb (the tomb of king Tut) is considered the most popular tomb discovered ever in the history of ancient Egypt because it was the best preserved royal tomb and it was almost impact when it was first discovered. Egyptologists estimated that the tomb was hidden for almost 3000 years before discovered by American Egyptologist Howard Carter in 1922 after five years of hard work, digging and excavating in the area of valley of the kings trying to find this tomb, the tomb has almost 3500 different items that were kept with the king in his tomb to prepare him for his next life including the pure golden mask of the pharaoh which is the most exotic item of the collection.
King Tut was only 9 years old when he became the pharaoh king of Egypt and he died or murdered almost 10 years after that date, scientists have two different theories about his death in such an early age first; he may have received a hit to the back of his head by an enemy or that probably one of his legs was fractured and then infected which cause his death probably few days after however, none of these theories have been proven yet. King Tut was married to one of his step sisters and had no children however, two bodies of newborn baby girls were found mummified in his tomb made the scientists suggested that his wife probably had two miscarriage before king Tut’s sudden death.
