Marisa DuranKing tutWorld History HonorsPeriod 2My pharaoh that I chose was Tutankhamun also known as King Tut and probably one of the best known pharaohs of ancient Egypt. He was the eleventh pharaoh of the eighteenth dynasty. He inherited the throne at the age of eight or nine. The discovery of his mummy revealed that he was about seventeen when he died. His father, Akhenaten, was pharaoh of Egypt and had forbidden the worship of many gods in favor of worshiping one, Aten, the sun god. Genetic testing has also verified that king tut was the grandson of the great pharaoh Amenhotep the second. He was tall but physically frail, with a crippling bone disease in his clubbed left foot.

His burial was virtually unknown until the 1920s, even the location was lost as its entrance had been covered by the debris from a later built tomb building. Inside one chamber, murials were painted on the walls that told the story of his afterlife and funeral. Many artifacts were found including the following, oils, perfumes, and toys from his childhood, precious jewelry, bracelets, rings, collars, statues of gold and ebony. It is thought that he must of have had a good childhood. He probably spent his younger years hunting, swimming, and studying. His tomb revealed he enjoyed board games. Like most children he probably found politics unexciting and went about his environment doing other activities.
