Prince Of Eygpt (Tutankhamun)

Eygpt is among the greatest civilization of human century ago. One of they very greatest achievemnt is the Pyramid which gives nowadays' human being to reconsider whether ancient people are good in mathematics. It is also clueless for us to think where the hell they got this idea to build such a magnificent and extraordinary pyramid that still visible in this century. Some suspected that egyptians were asisted by alien nation to construct a Pyramid and I believe (more or less)that pyramid was constructed by the ancestors of Israel who lived in Eygpt long time ago. As I was saying, the Eygpt or other civilization leaves mystery and yet unsolved. Archelogist made a big findings now and then and usually return to answer or new questions. One of the greatest finding was the remains of Tutankhamun. Who is he?

Nebkheperure Tutankhamun was a Pharaoh of the Eighteenth dynasty (ruled 1333 BC – 1324 BC in the conventional chronology), during the period of Egyptian history known as the New Kingdom. His original name, Tutankhaten, meant "Living Image of Aten", while Tutankhamun meant "Living Image of Amun". He is possibly also the Nibhurrereya of the Amarna letters. He was likely the eighteenth dynasty king 'Rathotis', who according to Manetho, an ancient historian, had reigned for nine years—a figure which conforms exactly with Flavius Josephus' generally accurate version of Manetho's Epitome.

How is he died at the age of ninteen (estimate)?
For a long time the cause of Tutankhamun's death was unknown, and it is still the root of much speculation. How old was the king when he died? Did he suffer from any physical abnormalities? Had he been murdered? Some of these questions were finally answered in early 2005 when the results of a set of CT scans on the mummy were released, but many still remain to be solved.

However, the 2005 conclusion by a team of Egyptian scientists, based on the CT scan findings, confirmed that Tutankhamun died of gangrene after breaking his leg. After consultations with Italian and Swiss experts, the Egyptian scientists found that the fracture in Tutankhamun's left leg most likely occurred only days before his death, which had then become gangrenous and led directly to his death.

Popular question: How does he look like?
The splendors of Tutankhamun's tomb are among the most traveled artifacts in the world. They have been to many countries, but probably the best-known exhibition tour was the Treasures of Tutankhamun tour, which ran from 1972-1979. This exhibition was first shown in London at the British Museum from 30 March until 30 September 1972. More than 1.6 million visitors came to see the exhibition, some queueing for up to eight hours and it was the most popular exhibition ever in the Museum.

Yesterday (November 4th, 2007 in LUXOR, Egypt), the true face of ancient Egypt's boy king Tutankhamun was revealed on Sunday to the public for the first time since he died in mysterious circumstances more than 3,000 years ago.
