The beginning of discovering the tomb of Tutankhamun

King Tutankhamun’s fascination began 101 years ago, when British archaeologist Howard Carter discovered the pharaoh’s largely intact tomb in Luxor’s Valley of the Kings, which contained thousands of golden treasures.

Tutankhamun (flourished 14th century BCE) was an ancient Egyptian king who reigned from 1333 to 23 BCE. He is best known for his intact tomb,which was discovered in the Valley of the Kings in 1922. During his reign, powerful advisers restored traditional Egyptian religion and art, which had been abandoned by his predecessor, Akhenaten, who led the “Amarna revolution.”

Tutankhaten’s (as he was originally known) parentage is unknown, but a single black fragment from Akhetaton (Tell el-Amarna), Akhenaten’s capital city, refers to him as a king’s son in a context similar to that of the princesses.

With the death of Smenkhkare, the young Tutankhaten became king, and was married to Akhenaten’s third daughter, Ankhesenpaaton (later known as Ankhesenamen), probably the eldest surviving princess of the royal family. Because at his accession he was still very young, the elderly official Ay, who had long maintained ties with the royal family, and the general of the armies, Horemheb, served as Tutankhaten’s chief advisers.
