The most famous story about a mummies curse occurred in 1923 when King Tutankhaumum's tomb was discovered by Howard Carter. Today everyone has heard of the young boy King Tut and his treasures have toured the globe. Many books have been published and many movies produced. Carter's patron and sponsor of the excavation, Lord Carnarvon, had entered the tomb with Carter. The tomb was virtually intact and had never been broken into. They were the first to enter since it was sealed in antiquity. What happened several weeks afterwards was the following. Lord Carnarvon got a mosquito bite that became infected and this led to pneumonia which he died from. At the time of his death there was a complete black-out in Cairo and Carnavon's dog in far-off England started howling at that instant. This story was spread all over the world and the interest in the "Curse of the Pharaohs" was rekindled. Today, many people probably think there was a curse on the tomb of King Tutankhaumum and that most of the people who entered the tomb died strange deaths.
