The Assassination Of King Tut

Three thousand years ago, a boy became king. Tutankhamun, the most famous of all the Egyptian pharaohs, died before his 20th birthday. The cause of death: a mystery. Even though the crime occurred over 3,000 years ago, evidence still remains.

Examine the clues and see if you can name the prime suspect.You be the detective and evaluate the clues. Find out about the victim and the prime suspects. Whodunit? Was it Tut's ambitious commander-in-chief of the most powerful army in the known world, fearful that Tut's youth and physical weaknesses might leave Egypt vulnerable to attack? Perhaps Maya, Tut's chief finance minister and the man who held the country's purse strings, felt his wealth threatened by the young king.

Did Ankhesenamun, Tut's bride since childhood, blame him for two heartbreaking miscarriages? Or could it have been Ay, Tut's prime minister, advisor, protector and father figure, who wanted the boy king cast aside in his own insatiable quest for power?

king tut's dad was NOT a dictator...he was the basis for moses, who never existed...! king tut's dad took 50 thousand of his followers to a new city----which is where the jewish exodus came from! king tut's dad was real---moses and the exodus was fake and came from him.

You are probably right as many of the myths seem to develop from Egypt.Most interesting is the words that Akhanaten spoke when he embraced monotheism."No one comes to THE ATEN except through me" sound fimiliar??
