Tutankhamen was a very young pharaoh. He claimed the throne at 9 years old!! He died at age 19, so some think he was murdered. He lived and died 3000 years ago, and later a pharaoh tried to erase him from history. Not much was known about Tut, until they found his tomb. After that, much more information was found on him. Some even think that there is enough information to say that he was murdered.
No one is positive who Tut's parents are. Some believe he was the son of Akhenta and his secondary wife, Kiya, but, no one is sure.
