Egyptologists named several more reasons for Tutankhamun’s death

(ORDO NEWS) — Today, Tutankhamun is considered one of the most famous Egyptian pharaohs in the whole world.

At the same time, a huge number of secrets are connected with his life and burial. He began ruling Ancient Egypt after the death of his father, Amenhotep IV.

At the time of his accession to the throne, Tutankhamun was only 9 years old. He was completely unprepared to lead such a powerful civilization.

That is why all military and political decisions were made by military commanders and elders instead of him. It is quite difficult to talk about how the pharaoh “ruled” for 10 years until his death.

There is also no accurate information about what decisions were made behind his back, because the ruler was a rather weak boy.

Egyptologists testify that Tutankhamun had a serious bone disease. In addition, he walked constantly with a cane due to clubfoot.

In 2010, scientists conducted several DNA tests that demonstrated that the pharaoh was repeatedly infected with malaria. He also had a fractured femur.

For a long time, experts have argued about how the young ruler died. The most popular version is that he was killed by a blow to the head or poisoned.

This may explain the reason for such a hasty burial. At the same time, the body was treated very carelessly.

There are versions that the cause of death could be blood infection. Some scientists believe that an accident could have happened.

In 1922, archaeologist Howard Carter discovered Tutankhamun’s tomb. At that time, almost nothing was known about the ruler.

At the time, there was no technology to determine exactly what happened to the young pharaoh. At the same time, it was clear from the beginning that his tomb was different from the rest.

Tutankhamun’s tomb is small in size and lacks the splendor characteristic of people of this status.

Due to the fact that the ruler died unexpectedly, the funeral did not have time to prepare properly. Most likely, the grave was intended for someone else.
