The mask of Tutankhamun

Tutankamon02

Description

Tutankhamun (approx. 1341 BC – 1323 BC) was an Egyptian pharaoh of the 18th dynasty (ruled c.1333 BC – 1323 BC in the conventional chronology), during the period of Egyptian history known as the New Kingdom. His original name, Tutankhaten, means “Living Image of Aten”, while Tutankhamun means “Living Image of Amun”. Tutankhamun was the son of Akhenaten (formerly Amenhotep IV) and one of Akhenaten’s sisters. He ascended to the throne in 1333 BC, at the age of nine or ten, marrying his half sister, Ankhesenepatan, who later changed her name to Ankhesenamun. They had two daughters, both stillborn. The 1922, discovery by Howard Carter and George Herbert, 5th Earl of Carnarvon of Tutankhamun’s nearly intact tomb received worldwide press coverage. It sparked a renewed public interest in ancient Egypt, for which Tutankhamun’s burial mask remains the popular symbol. Exhibits of artifacts from his tomb have toured the world.
