King Tut Warned “Death shall come on swift wings to him who disturbs the peace of the King.” after this there where many mysterious deaths surrounding those involved in the excavation and disturbance of king Tutankhamen.
King Tut is thought to have been born in 1341 B.C.E. in Egypt. He was named Tutankhaten, which translated means “the living image of Aten.” After coming into power he changed his name to Tutankhamun, which means “the living image of Amun.” Aten being the sun god, while Amun is king of the gods. Tut was a young pharaoh in power for 8-9 years and just 19 years old when he died. But there was a lot of mystery surrounding Tut when his tomb was finally discovered in 1922.
Upon the discovery of Tutankhamen’s tomb, journalists reported seeing the following inscription near the door: “Death shall come on swift wings to him who disturbs the peace of the King.” What followed the discovery, was a series of mysterious deaths linked to the opening of Tut’s tomb.
The first was that of Egyptologist Lord Carnarvon. He and Howard Carter were the first to open the tomb. A few months after the discovery Carnarvon died from an infected mosquito bite on his cheek. The link to Tut was quite spooky as later examination showed that Tut had malaria when he died, but even more eerily the pharaoh’s body had a similar scar on his cheek. It is also rumoured that the lights of Carnarvon house blacked out with no explanation when he died.
This was the start of a series of mishaps that followed relating to Tut. Howard Carter gifted his friend Sir Bruce Ingham a paperweight which was from a mummified hand. The bracelet had the following inscription: “Cursed be he who moves my body. To him shall come fire, water and pestilence.” Not long following this Ingham’s house burned down. When he rebuilt it, the house was hit by a flood.
George Jay Gould died of pneumonia on May 16, 1923, when after visiting the tomb of Tutankhamen he contracted a fever.
Audrey Herbert the brother to the main financier Lord Carnarvon, died from a mysterious death, after becoming blind a few months after the opening of the tomb.
Hugh Evelyn-White was the archaeologist who was tasked with the excavation of the body- he committed suicide hanging himself leaving a note saying “I have succumbed to a curse which forces me to disappear”.
Aaron Ember another Egyptologist who was close friends with Carnarvon died a few years after the opening of the tomb. His house burned down, and he died trying to save his copy of the now famous book The Egyptian Book of the Dead.
Archibald Douglas Reed, the person who X-rayed the mummy mysteriously died in 1924.
Prince Ali Kamel Fahmy Bey was a 23-year-old Egyptian prince who was shot dead by his wife shortly after he was photographed visiting the Tut’s tomb. Not part of the team, but still linked in to the project.
There are more deaths loosely related to people coming into contact with king Tut, but these seem to be the most obvious and high profile. This makes us question what we know about reality, could a coincidence of this magnitude happen or is this a true curse from a young pharaoh who did not want to be disturbed after his physical death?
