King Tut Day celebrates the date of the discovery of King Tutankhamen’s Tomb.
Over 3,000 years ago, King Tutankhamen (Too-tahnk-ah-men) became the King of Egypt at the age of 9. He died at the age of 19. He is commonly called “King Tut”. The tomb of Egypt’s “child king” was discovered on November 4, 1922. The tomb was discovered nearly intact in Egypt’s Valley of Kings.
King Tut’s rule lasted a short nine years, from 1333 B.C. to 1324 B.C. The cause of his death is uncertain. Murder and an innocent accident are the two main theories.
