Tutankhamun (born Tutankhaten, meaning Living image of Aten) wasa pharaoh in the 18th dynasty of Ancient Egypt . He was the son of Akhenaten and one of Akhenatens sisters, Nefertit (inbreeding was normal in ancient Egypt). His parents had 6 daughters, including Meritaton and Ankhesenamun, who later became his wife. They had 2 stillborn children.
Tutankhamun became pharaoh at year 9-10, and died 10 years after (between 19-20 years old). It is possible that he was killed by Ay and Horemheb, who became the last pharaohs in the 18th dynasty. He was buried in the Valley of the kings.
