born in Egypt. Along with that his birth
place was Amarna. Tut had buckteeth as a child. His
parents are unknown. Also he was married to Ankesenamun. In addition the couple produced no male heirs.
After he got married they moved to Memphis. Later in his life he got a broken leg.

his favorite stuff. Finally researchers continue to find out new things about
King Tut is famous for many reasons. For instance he was a pharaoh of the
18th dynasty. Along with that he was the twelfth ruler. In addition
he was a 20th century mummy. He was crowned king in Memphis at the age of nine.
It is a mystery of how he died but researchers believe he died because of a
broken leg. Along with that he was in the Valley of the King by an archeologist
named Howard Carter in1922. The tomb had for main rooms an annex antechamber
burial chamber treasury and an entrance passage. There they found boats couches
chests statues chariots a throne and other things. Also his tomb was made out of
solid rock. In addition Tut’s tomb was protected by an inner coffin middle coffin
outer coffin sarcophagus inner shrine second shrine third and an outer shrine.
Finally his 1000s of artifact are on display all around the world and his most
famous one is his golden death mask.
King Tut made impacts on other peoples lives in many ways. One way is
that he made archeologist busy by studying his tomb for example the hieroglyphics in his tomb. In
addition he made archeologist wonder about his life for instance how he died who
were his parents and many other things. Finally his discovery may change the way
we look at ancient Eygpt.
King Tut life is admirable because he restored old religious beliefs. He
did that because the people wouldn’t want to learn a different culture. Also he
restored old holy temple images and privileges of old gods. Plus he freed the
gods that were imprisoned by Akhenaton who was a king. That is why King Tut is
an admirable pharaoh.
