Who was King Tut?
King Tut (Tutankhamun) was a boy of 10 years in 1333 B.C. and ruled until age 19 when he died. Recent DNA tests provide several surprises:
1. He was a product of incest, his father and mother were brother and sister. He married his half sister.
2. He died from complications and infection stemming from a broken leg, which allowed malaria to develop and worsen.
3. He had a cleft palate and club foot. He suffered from several congential diseases that weakened his immune system.
4. Tut was not a healthy person, but frail, requiring a cane to walk. He also suffered from Kohler's disease, which inhibits blood supply to healthy bones in the foot.
5. His father, Akhenaten, also had a cleft foot, as did his grandfather.
King Tut, the teenage King died in January, 1343 B.C. Originally, it was thought that he had been murdered by a close friend, but advances in science have since dispelled this theory. Although he was buried centuries ago, his tomb and remains were only found in 1922 after a four day search. The tomb was in near perfect condition as it was left.
