His successor, Horemheb, may have tried to erase him from history, but Egypt's King Tut has become one of the most famous of Egyptian pharaohs by virtue of the discovery of his tomb by Egyptologist Howard Carter on November 4, 1922. The opening of the tomb revealed a treasure not only in terms of monetary worth, but in information about the world in which Tut lived and ruled. Tut assumed the throne at the age of nine and died only ten years later, possibly of an infection that resulted from a broken bone, or perhaps from a blow to the back of the head. His mummy still inhabits his tomb in the Valley of the Kings at Luxor, Egypt, but his golden burial mask is displayed at the Egyptian Museum in Cairo. Archaeologists now suspect the tomb has a hidden room which they speculate may be the burial chamber of Tut's stepmother Nefertiti. Visit the sites below to learn more about the Boy King.
