    Until the Covid-19 lockdown, London’s Saatchi Gallery was hosting a hit exhibition, Tutankhamun: Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh. The artefacts on loan from Egypt attracted large crowds despite high ticket prices - it was said to be Britain’s most expensive art exhibition ever. But an investigation by Egyptian journalist Gehad Abbas and BBC Arabic has found that the deal done by the Egyptian government to lend the artefacts to a commercial events company may have breached laws designed to protect priceless ancient treasures.

    Tutankhamun Tutankhamen is one among the foremost famous pharaohs of ancient Egypt from the eighteenth dynasty, and upon returning to the traditional Egyptian language we discover that the name of Tutankhamun means the living image of the god Amon. Tutankhamun received his rule at an early age; When he was nine years old, and since he was too young to assume power himself, there had to be two assistants for him, namely: Horemheb, that is, additionally to a gaggle of presidency officials besides the North and South Ministers, and students believe that Tutankhamun has ruled Egypt for a period ranging between 8-10 years, and he's considered the golden pharaoh, and he enjoyed wide fame, but this fame wasn't associated with his victories in wars, but rather to the treasures found in his cemetery and weren't subject to any damage, aside from his death, which is taken into account unknown and mysterious by some
    The pharaohs were considered to be the kings of ancient Egypt, where they lived a lifetime of luxury and wealth, and that they were blessed gold, perfumes, food and drink, until they took their treasures with them to the graves, while their pharaonic system was characterized by injustice and tyranny; this can be thanks to their societies that were dominated by agriculture and hunting, and for this reason their hierarchical authoritarian regime appeared, and also the term pharaohs was coined with the traditional kings of Egypt, this term was used before 1400 BC, and during this article are highlighted about one in every of the pharaohs, so it'll Addressing clarification of some information about King Tutankhamun, and a sign of his reign
    King Tutankhamun
    Tutankhamun is taken into account one in all the Egyptian pharaohs, during the eighteenth period of the history of ancient Egypt, and Pharaoh was Egypt during the amount 1334 to 1325 BC, and Tutankhamen was famous to an oversized degree, this fame wasn't associated with his accomplishments or wars that he won, but rather for several other reasons that had a good impact historically, the foremost prominent of those reasons was finding his tomb and every one his treasures without the slightest damage, also the mysterious circumstances surrounding his death, so many of us counted his death at an early age, especially since there have been traces of fractures within the bone Thigh and skull, and so his own minister marrying his widow after his death and immediately installed himself as minister, these mysterious events and every one the legends of the curse of the pharaohs associated with the tomb of Ankh were employed in movies and video games, and positively this stuff made Tutankhamun the foremost famous pharaohs that included his life Many mysteries remain unanswered to the present day, and King Tutankhamen died at a young age in his tomb “Cemetery 62” within the Valley of the Kings.
    The period of King Tutankhamun’s reign During the amount of King Ankh Amun’s rule what perceived to be the revolution of Tel Amarna appeared, this last revolution was against the previous pharaoh Akhenaten who changed the capital from Thebes to the new capital called Sister Aten Balmina, and he made several attempts to unify The gods of ancient Egypt, and among these gods Amun, and in 1331 BC, that is, within the third year of the rule of Tutankhamun who was 11 years old, he lifted the ban imposed on the gods, this decision was taken as a results of being influenced by his minister Ay, and it must be that Tut’s death Ankh Amun wasn't a normal one, but many studies indicated that he had been subjected to Lagital by his minister Khakhuragro Ra Ay, and there's several evidence available that confirms this, and among the foremost obvious is his marriage to the widow of King Tutankhamun, [3] and a pharaonic seal bearing The name of the widow of King Tutankhamun, which was called Ai and Ankh Sun Amun, additionally to the presence of a message bearing in its folds missive of invitation from the King of the Hittites to send one in all his sons to marry her, and when the King of the Hittites sent one among his sons to marry her he died before he entered the land of Egypt, and prevailed the assumption that Minister Khir Khirgru Ra A.

  • King Tutankhamen the Golden King and the Great Pharaohs ॐ

    35:00

    By November 1922, the archaeologist Howard Carter had spent seven frustrating years looking for King Tut's tomb in Luxor's Valley of the Kings. Eventually, his workers dug down 4 metres beneath the tomb of Rameses VI, where they found an entrance in the rock that led to a passageway 3 metres high and 2 metres wide. They cleaned out the rubble, and at the twelfth step, they found the top of a sealed stone doorway. This was exciting news, so Howard Carter immediately invited his financier, Lord Carnarvon, to come to the site to be present for the opening of the tomb. On the evening of November 24, Carter and Carnarvon were present when all the rubble was removed to reveal the stone door with the seal of King Tutankhamen in the plaster. This door was opened. It took another two days of hard work to clear another descending stairway full of rubble. This time they found a second door, which had the seals of both the Royal Necropolis and Tutankhamen. The workers made a hole through the stone door and Carter looked in with the light of a candle. Lord Carnarvon asked, Can you see anything? Carter replied, Wonderful things. There was magnificent treasure in the anteroom - and even more in the inner room, which took them another three months to get to. Lord Carnarvon himself opened this inner door on February 17th, 1923. King Tut's mummified remains were inside three coffins. The outer two coffins were made of hammered gold fitted to wooden frames, while the innermost coffin was made of solid gold. The body was originally inspected by Howard Carter’s team , though they were primarily interested in recovering the jewelry and amulets from the body. To remove the objects from the body, which in many cases were stuck fast by the hardened embalming resins used, Carter's team cut up the mummy into various pieces: the arms and legs were detached, the torso cut in half and the head was severed. Hot knives were used to remove it from the golden mask to which it was cemented by resin. Lord Carnarvon died on April 6, 1923 The 5th Earl was an enthusiastic amateur Egyptologist, undertaking in 1907 to sponsor the excavation of the royal tombs at Thebes by Howard Carter. It was in 1922 that they together opened the tomb of Tutankhamun in the Valley of the Kings, exposing treasures unsurpassed in the history of archaeology. Several months later, Carnarvon was found dead at the Winter Palace Hotel.His death is most probably explained by blood poisoning (progressing to pneumonia) after accidentally shaving a mosquito bite infected with erysipelas. At 1:55 a.m., the lights in Cairo (where he died in a hospital) went out and plunged the people into darkness. Reportedly, at the same time, back at his home, his dog gave out a great howl and died.[citation needed] King Tut's treasures went on exhibition to various museums around the world. When Arthur C. King Tutankhamen was the son of Akhenaten and his minor wife Kiya. Queen Kiya's title was Greatly Beloved Wife of Akhenaten so it is possible she could have borne him an heir. Supporting this theory, images on the tomb wall in the tomb of Akhenaten show that a royal fan bearer standing next to Kiya's death bed, fanning what is either a princess or most likely a wet nurse holding a baby, which would indicate that the wet nurse was holding the boy-king-to-be. Tut Pharaoh of the Eighteenth dynasty (ruled 1333 BC – 1324 BC), during the period of Egyptian history known as the New Kingdom. His original name, Tutankhaten, meant Living Image of Aten, while Tutankhamun meant Living Image of Amun. He is possibly also the Nibhurrereya of the Amarna letters. He was likely the 18th dynasty king 'Rathotis', who according to Manetho, an ancient historian, had reigned for 9 years—a figure which conforms exactly with Flavius Josephus' generally accurate version of Manetho's Epitome.
    In historical terms, Tutankhamun is of only moderate significance, and most of his modern popularity stems from the fact that his tomb in the Valley of the Kings was discovered almost completely intact. However, he is also significant as a figure who managed the beginning of the transition from the heretical Atenism of his predecessors Akhenaten and Smenkhkare back to the familiar Egyptian religion. As Tutankhamun began his reign at age 9, his vizier and eventual successor Ay was probably making most of the important political decisions during Tutankhamun's reign. Nonetheless, Tutankhamun is, in modern times, one of the most famous of the Pharaohs, and the only one to have a nickname in popular culture (King Tut).
    His age at death was estimated at 19 years, based on physical developments that set upper and lower limits to his age. The king had been in general good health, and there were no signs of any major infectious disease or malnutrition during childhood. He was slight of build, and was roughly 170 cm (5'7) tall.

    5:57

    (26 Mar 2019) LEADIN:
    Original artifacts from Tutankhamun's tomb are going on display in Paris in an exhibit celebrating the centenary of the discovery of the most famous pharaoh's treasures.
    Some items are returning to Paris more than 50 years after a similar exhibit attracted 1.24 million visitors, a record that still stands in the French capital.
    STORYLINE:
    The ancient Egyptians saw death as a gateway to a new life, they buried their pharaohs in gilded caskets, surrounded by precious treasures.
    In 1922, British archaeologist Howard Carter discovered the near-intact tomb of Tutankhamun, the Egyptian pharaoh died some 3,400 years before.
    His mummified body was surrounded by precious items.
    Now, almost a century since the discovery, treasures from the pharaoh's burial site are going on display in Paris.
    About 150 objects from Tutankhamun's tomb are going on display at the Grande Halle de la Villette.
    Tarek El Awady, the curator of 'Tutankhamun, the Treasures of the Pharaoh' exhibit, says it's the biggest display of its kind.
    This is an exceptional exhibition. This is a unique one for many reasons, he says.
    First, it's the largest exhibition for Tutankhamun. We have 150 objects travel(ling) outside Egypt. This is the biggest number of objects to travel in one exhibit for Tutankhamun since the time of the discovery of Tutankhamun's tomb.  
    Sixty objects on display never been exhibited before.
    They include coffins and sarcophagi adorned with precious stones such as lapis-lazuli, vases decorated with hieroglyphs and even some toys and items from Tutankhamun's childhood.
    The exhibition will tour ten cities, including London in November, before returning to the newly-opened Grand Egyptian Museum near the Giza pyramids.
    Curator El Awady says it's an exciting time.
    Egypt is celebrating the 100 years since the discovery of Tutankhamun by the whole world. That's why we are sending this exhibition to ten cities all over the world, he says.
    And through the exhibition, Egypt is also delivering an important message to the world, which is that the country is now ready for the opening of the Grand Egyptian Museum.
    This is the new home for Tutankhamun. There, the whole treasure of Tutankhamun. We are talking about more than 5,300 objects, (which) will be on display for the first time since the discovery of Tutankhamun's tomb.
    The exhibit 'Tutankhamun, the Treasures of the Pharaoh' is on view at Paris' Grande Halle de la Villette from March 23 to Sept. 15, the second stop on a ten-city international tour.

  • The Greatest Pharaohs of Egypt

    1:50:58

    The Complete Valley of the Kings: Tombs and Treasures of Ancient Egypt's Royal Burial dynasties - how long a family ruled for. Rulers of Egypt were called pharaohs, the only country to call them this. Since Egypt has a history that goes back more than seven thousand years the list of pharaohs is long. Here are a few of the more interesting ones:
    Hatshepsut (1473 - 1458 BC)

    One of only a few female pharaohs, Hatshepsut who was the first wife Thutmose II. After Thutmose's death, his son, Thutmose III, (by a minor wife) was named the heir. Because the boy was so young, Hatshepsut ruled with him until she declared herself pharaoh. She claimed the god Amon-Ra said she was to be pharaoh. Dressed not as a lady, but in men's clothes, Hatshepsut took charge of the nation and had the support of the high priest and other officials. For 20 years she ruled Egypt and during that time the economy was great. She started trading with more countries, built impressive temples and restored many others. One of these magnificent buildings was the temple at Deir el Bahari. Hatshepsut disappeared after Thutmose III reclaimed the throne, and what became of her is a mystery.
    Thutmose III (1479 - 1425 BC)

    Thutmose III might be responsible for the mysterious disappearance of Hatshepsut, but he was still a great ruler. He has been called the Napoleon of ancient Egypt. After taking the throne he had Hatshepsut's name cut from the temple walls and tried to erase her name from history. Thutmose never lost a battle. Thutmose III was a national hero and he was respected throughout Egyptian history. Besides being a military genius he is well known for his many buildings. He set up several obelisks. One, which is mistakenly called Cleopatra's Needle, can be seen on the Embankment in London. Another one is in Central Park in New York, one in Rome and another in Istanbul. (Obviously he didn't build them in these locations, they were excavated and moved centuries later).
    Tutankhamen (1336 - 1327 BC)

    At the age of nine Tutankhamen became pharaoh. King Tut, as a lot of people call him, was too young to rule Egypt so his uncle Ay, who was the highest minister, ruled for him while he was a boy. Tut married Ankhsenoomun. Tutankhamen died at 18. His body was found with his skull bashed in. It is thought that Ay may have had something to do with the sudden and mysterious death. Only a person of great importance could get near enough to harm him, one of them would have been Ay. Ay married Tut's widow (who is also a suspect in Tut's murder), despite being her grandfather, so that he could have power.
    Ramesses II (1279 - 1213 BC)

    Ramesses II was one of the longest ruling pharaohs of ancient Egypt. He was called Ramesses the Great and ruled for 67 years, although beside his father in the beginning. It is said that Ramesses lived for over 80 years. The average person lived to about 40 so he must have seemed like a god. Ramesses made a name for himself as a builder and a warrior but he also had a rep as a ladies man. He had over a dozen wives and more than 100 children.

    (21 Mar 2019) LEAD IN:
    Original artifacts from Tutankhamun's tomb are going on display in Paris in an exhibit celebrating the centenary of the discovery of the most famous pharaoh's treasures.
    Some items are returning to Paris more than 50 years after a similar exhibit attracted 1.24 million visitors, a record that still stands in the French capital.

    STORY-LINE:
    The ancient Egyptians saw death as a gateway to a new life, they buried their pharaohs in gilded caskets, surrounded by precious treasures.
    In 1922, British archaeologist Howard Carter discovered the near-intact tomb of Tutankhamun, the Egyptian pharaoh died some 3,400 years before.
    His mummified body was surrounded by precious items.
    Now, almost a century since the discovery, treasures from the pharaoh's burial site are going on display in Paris.
    About 150 objects from Tutankhamun's tomb are going on display at the Grande Halle de la Villette.
    Tarek El Awady, the curator of 'Tutankhamun, the Treasures of the Pharaoh' exhibit, says it's the biggest display of its kind.
