About King Tutankhamun

About King Tutankhamun

King Tutankhamun was the son of the Egyptian King Akhenaten, who was quite controversial because he shifted the capital of Egypt to Amarna from Thebes! Another controversy is decreeing that the people of Egypt will only worship one god, Aten!

It was during the 13-year reign of King Akhenaten that Egypt became considerably weak! But it was King Tutankhamun who brought stability back to the nation by returning to traditions, restoring old Gods along with temples, and removing changes brought by King Akhenaten.

The kings who came later removed the history of King Tut and his father from records; hence, it was much later that people became aware of them, especially with the discovery of their tombs in the early 20th century. However, their strategy did not work because King Tut became one of the most famous pharaohs!

There might be a possibility of a plot to remove King Tut from power as the kings who came after him tried their best to remove all historical evidence of King Tut and his father.

It might be that the King was a battle-hardened warrior riding the chariot too fast, just like any other teenage boy at that age! The funerary artifacts that have been there in his tomb show him all his glory, and maybe that is the truth.

Probable Reason For Tutankhamun’s Death!

There are several theories related to King Tut’s death; one of them is surrounding a small fragment that was found inside the mummy’s skull. Historians suspected that the boy king was murdered by receiving a blow to the back of his head.

Later, it was observed that during the mummification process, the injury might have taken place. Thus, it was proved that he was not murdered. The researchers or scientists initially informed that the boy king was sickly with low immunity, which led to his quick death.

Historians doubt that the injury at the kneecap, a fracture that did not show any sign of healing, is at the root of King Tut’s death. The theory developed from this injury is that the type of injury has been identified as a high-velocity fall impact!

Even though there has not been any confirmation regarding this theory, historians suspect that he was riding a chariot when he suffered a fall! How can we forget the theory of a form of malaria which was found in his mummy? His death might also be related to the condition of malaria.

King Tut Was Sickly Or Murdered…

In his lifetime, he has been well known, but at a very young age, he was ridden with responsibilities. However, later historians observed chariots inside his tomb, so there could be a chance of him falling off the chariot and hurting him.
