Tutankhamun
"<" back one image Tutankhamun 
 Tutankhamun was born in 1343 BC as Tutankhaten, changing it to Tutankhamun due to pressure from traditionalists, reflecting the return of the worship of the old god Amun. He was only eight or nine when he became ruler of Egypt, dying when he was 19. The cause of death is not certain, possibly murder, or possibly an infection after breaking his leg in a chariot accident. He ruled from around 1333 BC to 1324 BC. He was the son of Akhenaten and his mother was Akhenaten’s sister. Aged just 9, he married his half-sister Ankhesenpaaten and they had two still born daughters. His tomb in the Valley of the Kings, was discovered by Howard Carter in 1922. When asked “Can you see anything?”, Carter replied “Yes, wonderful things!”.
