ME: King Tut, it is an honor to speak with you today. Thank you for being here. May I ask you some questions about your life?
KT: It's an honor to be here. Glad I could come. Of course you can ask me questions about my life.
ME: King Tut, when and where were you born? Who were your parents?
KT: I was born in 1343 BC. I was born in Amarna, the capital of Egypt at the time. My father was Pharaoh Akhenaten and my mother was his wife Nefertiti.
ME: What was found in your tomb? Where was your tomb found? When was your tomb found?
KT: I was very rich, considering that I was Pharoah. There were many things found in my tomb, such as a throne, statues, and bracelets. My tomb was found in theValley of Kings, the traditional buriel place for kings. My tomb was discovered in 1922.
ME: How old were you when you died and how did you die?
KT: I believe that I was 19 years old when I died. Some historians think that I died because of abroken leg caused by maleria. Others think that I died because of a head injury.
ME: Did you ever get married? If so, who did you get married to?How old were you and your wife when you got married?
KT: Why yes, I did get married. I was married to my half-sisterAnkhesenamon. I was nine and my wife was thirteen when we got married. We tried to have children but sadly their was a miscarriage and we had a stillborn baby girl.
ME: What is the Curse of King Tut? Is it true?
KT: The curse of King Tut says that death shall come to whoever disturbs the peathe pharaoh. It was inscribed on the outside of my tomb. The curse is belived to be true becauseLord Carnavon, the man who paid for the expedition, died shortly after my tomb was discovered. There is no proof that this curse is true.
ME: How old were you when you became pharaoh?
KT:I was 9 years old when I becamepharaoh. The reason was that my father died. Also because I was his oldest son.
ME: Thank you for being with us today. I learned a lot about your life.
