Poor King Tut

This morning, I read an interesting fact in my newspaper - well, it was interesting to me, as I love history and antiquity.

It was about the Egyption pharaoh Tutanchamon (king Tut). You have to conclude he was a poor bugger. Not only was he probably murdered, but he was burried second-hand.



The world famous death mask was not originally made for him, but for his stepmother, Queen Nefertiti... His name was written aboven Nefertiti's one. And also in the burial room were lots of objects belonging to other members of the royal family.

Proves that riches don't always bring happiness!
