The Mysterious Death of Tutankhamun

(2002)
Re-opening the Case of Egypt's Boy-king
A non fiction book by

 
 
Since the discovery of Tutankhamun's magnificent tomb at Thebes by Howard Carter and Lord Carnarvon in 1922, the young Pharaoh has captured the public imagination. The boy-king came to the throne aged 12 during one of Egypt's most turbulent periods when religious dissent threatened to sever the unity built up by a line of war-like pharaohs and even to shatter a far-flung empire. He should have lived out a long and prosperous reign but died mysteriously just six years after his accession. Was he secretly assassinated by the powerful cartel that ran the court and the country? Or murdered by Ay, his ambitious first minister, himself desirous of the imperial crown? Here, using modern research, coupled with Carter's original testimony, this thought-provoking account offers vital new clues to the eventual fate of Tutankhamun and illuminates the intrigue that surrounded his sudden and untimely end.
