Tutankhamun had two siblings, his siblings names were Smenkhkare (his brother) and Ankhesenamun (his sister). After Tutankhamun's mother (the younger lady) died his father (Akhenaten) married Ankhesenamun (Tutankhamun's sister) so she became his sister/stepmother. When Akhenaten died Tutankhamun was seven and to young to rule so his brother, Smenkhkare ruled for two years and then died. After that Tutankhamun became pharaoh at the age of 9 he married his sister/stepmother. After Tutankhamun died of gang green his uncle took over the throne and married Tutankhamun's sister/stepmother. King Tut and Cleopatra could possibly be related
