King Tutanhkamun Bust Aswan Granite. Handmade in Egypt.
Born circa 1341 B.C.E., King Tut was the 12th king of the 18th Egyptian dynasty, in power from 1332 B.C.E. to 1323 B.C.E. During his reign, powerful advisers restored the traditional Egyptian religion which had been set aside by his predecessor Akhenaten, who had led the "Amarna Revolution." After his death at age 18, he disappeared from history until the discovery of his tomb in 1922. Since then, studies of his tomb and remains have revealed much information about his life and times.
Tutankhamun was the son of Akhenaten formerly Amenhotep IV and one of Akhenaten's sisters, or his cousins. As a prince he was known as Tutankhaten.He ascended to the throne in 1333 BC, at the age of nine or ten, taking the throne name Nebkheperure. His wet-nurse was a woman called Maia, known from her tomb at Saqqara.
When he became king, he married his half-sister, Ankhesenpaaten, who later changed her name to Ankhesenamun. They had two daughters, both stillborn. Computed tomography studies released in 2011 revealed that one daughter died at 5–6 months of pregnancy and the other at 9 months of pregnancy. No evidence was found in either mummy of congenital anomalies or an apparent cause of death.
