Who Murdered King Tut Tutankhamen. King Tut. The Boy King. Pharaoh. King of Upper and Lower Egypt. Regardless of how you choose to refer to the young man (I prefer King Tut), you will always strike interest in the minds of those you speak with. One thing is for certain. We don't know a whole lot about him. We know that Egypt began to fail around the time he was born. The Egyptians lost battles, lost land, and was in economic turmoil. His Father and Mother were both Dead before his tenth birthday, leaving him with the throne. King Tut's 'senior advisor', or Vizier, was a man named Aye, and because of the pharaoh's young age, Aye pretty much ran things after the royal palace was moved back to Themes following King Tut's father's reign.

The Egyptians carved their names in oval shaped blocks, called a cartouche. On the next page is an example of a Cartouche. Please forgive the commercial nature of this example. But why would the name be erased? King T... ... middle of paper ... ...e was not recorded in history, it was as though you never existed. I am not asking anyone to take this theory as Gospel; but it all falls into place, and you can believe it if you like. This is strictly a hypothesis based on my research, and I believe it. You, too, can believe it; or you can continue to believe King Tutankhamen died of natural causes at the age of 20. That's FIFTEEN years prior to the average age of that day, however……………………………………………… Bibliography:  The Murder of Tutankhamen, Hardcover, © 1999 by Dr. Bob Brier, PhD.  http://www.osirisweb.com/egypt/tutpage.htm, Copyright © 1997 by Anthony C.
