Following his father's death, a very young king Tut ascended the throne. He was only 9 years old. During his reign, the old ways were restored, the god Amun was worshiped once again and the capital was moved back to Thebes. Tutankhamun was married to his half-sister and cousin Akhesenamun. He reigned for about nine years and then died unexpectedly. The cause of his death is still being debated to this day, although historians like to believe that it was due to his disabilities and weakened immune system, which was a result of centuries of inbreeding. What's most bizarre about Tutankhamun is not his life, but his death and its aftermath.
His tomb was discovered first in 1922 by Howard Carter, and many probes have been made into King Tut and his life since then. It was evident from his tomb that it had been intended for someone else, and then finished in a hurry. The walls had dark brown splotches suggesting that he had been entombed even before the paint was dry. When Carter and his team found him, they had difficulty separating his mummy from the golden mask and ornaments he wore. They had to finally chisel it away using hot knives. This has led to the revelation that shortly after his burial, his body had spontaneously combusted, most probably due to the burial resins and heat. Evidence also suggests that his tomb was robbed twice before its discovery.
The most famous artifact found from his tomb was the iconic golden mask, which is now displayed in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo, reminding us of the legacy of the young king who wore it and the rich culture of ancient Egypt.
