2 Tutankhamen

3 This Egyptian Pharaoh was born with the name of Tutankhamen – the living image of the God Aton - the origins of Tutankhamen are still mysterious, numerous scholars think that he is a son of Amenhotep IV and Nefertiti. Converted to the worship of Amon, Tutankhamen orders the construction of a temple to the west of Tebas. Successor of Akhenaton, the young Pharaoh rises to the throne at 9 years of age and reigns until his dead; died with 18 years, from1335 to 1327 B.C. Tutankhamen was buried in the Valley of the Kings, in Tebas. His tomb discovered in 1922 by Howard Carter, is the biggest archaeological discovery of the XX century and at the time of the discovery it was one of few almost intact graves. All the marvelous objects found in the tomb constitute the treasure of Tutankhamen created 14 centuries B.C. by Egyptian artists and represent a fabulous exponent of Egyptian art.
