The Mysteries of King Tutankhamen’s Death
There have been many theories on how Tutankhamen died. However, several scientist and doctors believe that they have solved the mystery. During research of this mystery many theories and assumptions have been made; such as murder, accidental death, birth defects, and illnesses. The three theories that will be discussed here are as follows: gynecomestia, accidental death, or murder.
First we have the theory of Dr. Hutan Ashrafian, a lecturer and surgeon at the Imperial College London. He says that the key to solving the mystery lies in the art of the time. Numerous signs in the art depict King Tut with highly feminine features, and ...view middle of the document...

This indicates that the young pharaoh must have suffered from frequent falls caused by temporal lobe epilepsy.
Next is the theory of Dr. Zahi Hawass, Secretary General of the Egyptian Supreme Council of Antiquities. In 2005 Dr. Hawass and his team conducted a CT scan of Tutankhamun’s mummy, which enumerated the characteristics of the teen pharaoh at the time of death.The scan showed that King Tut had large front teeth with an overbite, a dolichocephalic (long-headed) skull, slightly cleft palate, and scoliosis (curved spine). It was believed by the Dr. and his team that all of these signs pointed to Tutankhamun having a disease known as Klippel-Feil syndrome. During the scan they also found an unhealed break in the left thigh bone that Dr. Hawass believes came from the young pharaoh falling from a moving chariot and died days later from a bad infection caused by the leg injury. Dr. Hawass also stated that he is not really completely certain on how King Tut died, but for now we know it was not murder. It has long been speculated that King Tut was poisoned and if Dr. Hawass is not 100% sure on how he died, then murder cannot yet be ruled out.
The last theory is that of an American Egyptologist by the name of Bob Brier who truly believes that King Tut was murdered. Bob was a researcher at Long Island University interested in paleopathology, the study of disease in the ancient world. He was particularly interested in an x-ray that was done of King Tut’s head in 1963. During investigations by his team they found what could be a...
