King Tutankhamen, also known as King
Tut, came into power around the age of eight or nine. Tutankhamen
was in power during the eighteenth dynasty. The eighteenth dynasty
was during the New Kingdom. Tutankhamen was the youngest king of
all the pharaohs. He was also king during the Amarna period.
During a segment of this period, the traditional values of Egypt were being
changed. When Tutankhamen came into power, he changed all of Egypt's
traditional values to their original state. King Tutankhamnen lived
a very short life. He died in mid January of the year 1343 B.C.
He was buried in The Valley of the Kings. Many years later, Howard
Carter, an archaeologist, found his tomb. He found many great
things, such as: The Golden Mask of Tutankhamen, the many coffins he was
in, and the many gold objects that Tutankhamen owned.
