TUTANKHAMUN

The most famous Egyptian pharaoh today is, without doubt, Tutankhamun. However, before the spectacular discovery of his almost intact tomb in the valley of the kings in November 1922, Tutankhamun was only a little known figure of the late 18th Dynasty.

Tutankhamen was probably born at Akhetaten which was the capital city of Egypt.He was born in about the year 1346 BC.

He became pharaoh at the tender age of nine in 1337 BC and reighned during the 18th Dynasty when the Egyptian Empire was at its height.

He reighned from about 1328 to 1337 BC.

His tomb was discovered by a team of British archaeologists in 1922, in the valley of kings, nearly 3000 years after his death.

Legend has it, anyone who dares to open the tomb will suffer the wrath of the mummy.
