King Tut lived around 1343 to 1323 BC, and because he was only ten years old when he became a pharaoh, he was called the 'boy king'. King Tut's father was the pharaoh Akhenaten. King Tut, short for King Tutankhamun, was a pharaoh during Ancient Egypt's New Kingdom. He's mostly known for his famous tomb and the supposed curse that followed those who opened it. As a pharaoh, he was of minor importance and only reigned for less than a decade. However, he is an interesting character in Ancient Egyptian history.
The largest-ever display of King Tut artifacts is going on view in London before returning to its final resting place - Egypt
