Over 3000 years and mysteries of exactly who King Tut was and how he died still remain. At the young age of 8, King Tutankhamun is believed to be the 12th ruler of Egypt. His reign lasted until his late teens. How he died still just as mysterious and intriguing. Evidence exists that suggests assassination of this young leader.
