Tutankhamun

Tutankhamun

Tut's Famous Funeral Mask
His original name, Tutankhaten, meant The Living Image of Aten. However, when his father Akhenaten either died or was killed, Tut changed his name to Tutankhamun, meaning The Living Image of Amun. Tut married his half sister Ankhesenamun, who was also the daughter of Nefertiti. They were not to have a long reign together. At eighteen or nineteen, Tut died of an infection stemming from a broken leg.

Tut's Sandals
The sandals have bound prisoners inlaid into the soles: when the king walked in these shoes, he would crush the enemies of Egypt underfoot.

Tutankhamun
"I am thy wife, O Great One... do not leave me!
Is it thy good pleasure, O my brother, that I should go far from thee?
How can it be that I go away alone?
I say: 'I accompany thee, O thou who didst like to converse with me,'
But thou remainest silent... and speaketh not."

—Ankhesenamun's poem, placed in Tut's coffin
