Tutankhamun wasn’t Egypt’s most powerful or important king, but he is the most intriguing, due to his lavish riches and wide-spread notoriety in the modern world. In 2005, scientists ran Tut’s mummy through a CT scanner and concluded that Tut was not violently murdered around 1323 B.C. via Gulf News

The exhibit Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs is presently at San Francisco’s de Young Museum through March 28, 2010.
