Walt: write the story of Tutankhamun. (Tut)

Tutankhamen was the king or  Pharaohs of Ancient Egypt. He ruled Egypt  from 1333 BC to 1324 BC.He was 9 years old when he ruled Egypt. He died when he was 18 years old. His mum's name was Kira, the father’s name was Akhenaten. It’s believed that Kira had given birth to Tutankhamun. He had a wife as well. Her name was Ankhesenpaaten. They both had no children.

Tutankhamun died but  there were two theories how he died. It’s believed  that he got hit on the back of his head and his skull  was fractured. The other belief was he fractured his leg and it got infected. Then he died about a few days later.

Tutankhamun tomb was found in the valley of Luxor in Cairo. His mask is found in the museum in Egypt. His tomb was very small because he was slight of build. He was fed very well. Gold was found in his tomb as well and his mask. All kinds of jewellery was found.
