Tutankhamun was and Egyptian pharaoh of the 18th dynasty 1332-1323 BC. was first called Tutankhaten (living image of Aten) . Most famous as the boy king and the fact that his tomb is the only  burial place of a pharaoh found intact. The tomb was discovered in 1922 by Howard Carter, funded by Lord Carnarvon. The news of the discovery of the tomb became worldwide press and still remains an amazing once in a life time discovery.
He became king from the age of nine and eventually took his half sister Ankhesenamun as his wife. Sadly two of his daughter were in his tomb with him. One was born 5-6 months prematurely and the other was full term of 9 months.
There is still research being done today whether he was murdered or died from injury at the young age of 18ish.
