What I Learned About King Tut

What I learned about King Tutankhamun was that he did not live very long. 19 years to be exact. He started to be king when he was 9 and was king for 10 years. Also there are opinions that King Tutankhamun died from Malaria, Avascular Bone Disorder, or a chariot accident. What was really interesting was that after Tutankhamun died, Hittites had a war against egypt and won some of its empire. That is what I learned about King Tutankhamun.

Connections About King Tut

When I think about King Tut, I also think about Moses because Tutankhamun and Moses were both very mysterious. Mysterious means very bizarre or scary. Something mysterious about King Tut is that one of his mothers died right after he was born. Scholars do not know how his mother died. Mystery also surrounds Moses because Moses was able to live up to a very old age! That is mysterious because no one could live up to how old he was. That is a connection I can make for King Tutankhamun and Moses.
