Since nearly 100 years, the tomb of King Tutankhamun has been discovered in the Valley of the Kings. Because of the incredible condition of his final resting place and the grave goods discovered alongside his body, he has become the most famous Ancient Egyptian pharaoh in the world.

King Tutankhamun was a young pharaoh whose ancient tomb and opulent artefacts have enthralled generations since their discovery. He ascended the throne at the age of nine and reigned until his death at the age of 18 or 19.

The 3,000-year-old tomb's discovery was a watershed moment in archaeology.

The  outermost coffin of Tutankhamun is made of wood and gold-gilded. It was discovered alongside thousands of other treasures that had not been disturbed by graverobbers.

According to Waziri, Tutankhamun's tomb was the only one discovered almost intact in the Valley of the Kings. In comparison to the other tombs in the Valley of the Kings, this one is quite small.

Tutankhamun has been shrouded in mystery since his discovery from a supposed curse on his tomb to questions about how he died.

Waziri claimed that he perished as a result of this collision, the chariot, the left wheel, and other factors. He continued by mentioning the pharaoh's severe malaria and fragile bones.

Once the Grand Egyptian Museum in Giza opens, Tutankhamun and the items from his tomb will be displayed together.
