PHARAO TUTANKHAMUN – THE BOY KING
Pharao Tutankhamun (c. 1341 B.C.E. to c. 1323 B.C.E.), sometimes referred to as King Tut, was the 12th pharaoh of the 18th Egyptian dynasty, in power from approximately 1332 to 1323 B.C.E.
When he ascended the throne of Egypt he was only eight or nine years old and is, therefore, sometimes being referred to as the Boy-King.
During his reign, he restored the traditional Egyptian religion, which had been set aside by his father, Akhenaten. He further re-empowered the priests of the Ancient religion, restored its old monuments and moved the capital back to Thebes.
When he died aged only 19,
Tutankhamun disappeared from history until the discovery of his tomb in 1922.
The discovery of his almost intact tomb in the Valley of the Kings by the British archaeologist and Egyptologist Howard Carter (1874-1939) on 4th November 1922, which was funded by Lord George Herbert Carnarvon, the 5th Earl of Carnarvon (1890- 1923), was an absolute archaeological world sensation with over 5,000 amazing artifacts discovered, including his now world- famous golden death mask.
Since then, studies of his tomb and remains have revealed much information about his life and pharaonic times, making Tutankhamun the best known ancient Egyptian king.
