Over the years, King Tut has fascinated the public in many ways as expert studies have been conducted regarding this legend's life and death. As for the latter, many pundits have predicted what caused Egypt's teen Pharaoh to die at age of 18 in 1323 BC.
Now, on Nov. 4, one more theory has been added. This theory has become so intriguing that the entire concept is trending. According to Yahoo! News, King Tut died in a chariot race that had "gone bad."
The top source said that certain experts have ascertained that the teenager was taking part in this dangerous sport a bit more than 3,000 years ago when he fell and was consequently smashed by the chariot he was commanding.
Yahoo! says "his ribs and pelvis were shattered and his heart was crushed."
After that, the report comments that Tut's body was mummified and embalmed. Sadly, the procedure was said to have gone wrong and this prominent Egyptian was allegedly burned in his sarcophagus. Indeed, his small body and all its wrappings were said to have been caused to "spontaneously combust"because of the botched job done after he was dead.
But back to the original theory of his death: Could King Tut have been killed while participating in a chariot race?
The answer is: Perhaps. This determination was made by scientists after a bunch of these experts did a virtual autopsy.
However, this isn't the only answer as to why King Tut died. Another theory is that, after his DNA and CT scans were studied, the results indicated that Egypt's King Tut not only died from malaria, but that he also had a club foot.
So did King Tut die of malaria or did he die due to a chariot race gone wrong? What was the ultimate reason for the death of Egypt's King Tut? Want to guess. Nobody knows for sure.
