Researchers have released a new digital facial reconstruction of Tutankhamun. Through these pictures, we can understand that Tutankhamun’s face looks like a teenager. The new one is similar to the reconstruction made by the French research team a few years ago. The first attempt to recreate Tutankhamun’s face was made in 1983.
Tutankhamun’s life is still a mystery to the scientific world. 18th Dynasty Tutankhamun is said to have ascended to power when he was eight or nine years old. Tutankhamun died when he was 19 years old. How Tutankhamun died is still a matter of debate.
Causes of death range from broken leg, falling from a vehicle to malaria. Another theory is that Tutankhamun may have had sickle cell anemia. There was a rumor that he might have died from a blow to the head, but that was later proven wrong.
