There are characters that have been talked about to exhaustion, in fact, their death has eclipsed their life. Tutankhamun is one of them, a character commonly mentioned in this section as well.
Although he died particularly young (he was 19 years old at the time of his death) and any details related to his life were known until recently, he gained great popularity after his death due to the circumstances that followed and the supposed curse that persecuted everyone who he was present at the moment of the opening of his chamber.
In addition to being the son of Akhenaten, the so-called heretic pharaoh for converting the Egyptian religion to monotheism, and having been buried in a chamber full of treasures that probably did not belong to him (“I see… wonderful things”, a phrase said by Howard Carter in the moment of discovery has gone down in history), Tutankhamen was the last of a dynasty and suffered the problems of his lineage.
Due to inbreeding, it is believed that he walked poorly and used sticks and his health was not the best. At first it was considered that he could have been killed, but over time it was concluded that he probably died due to malaria.
