You know what I think? I think Tutankhamun was assassinated because of all his gold he has. What I don't get though is that he was the pharoah of Egypt! Egypt of all places. Egypt is a great place, and Cairo is a big City. I know this because I read it. There are so many silly people in this world that don't read! HA!
Anyway, he was their leader thing (a pharoah what a silly name heh), so why did they kill their own leader? Maybe it wasnt egypt!

I don't think I fully understood what you were 'trying' to say, but then again I don't think anyone did.

Cairo is near Memphis, but it's not the same city.

One part of Cairo used to be an ancient Egyptian town - Heliopolis or Iunu, in Egyptian, I guess.

There's no curse, it was only a creation of some journalists.

I think the city was Iunu, but I'm not sure. I thought that Heliopolis was farther south, but don't take my word for it! I'm at work so I don't have a map!

I think Heliopolis is the Greek name for Iunu, Iunu is Egyptian and On is Coptic. But I may be mistaken.

Your thinking right in that Heliopolis is Greek for Iunu.
On is the nome Iunu is in.
Nome means province.

Ok you got things a little mixed up. King Tut had just as much gold as any other pharaoh before and after him. He was just had the only tomb that wasn't plundered by grave robbers. Thats why he's famouse. And what makes you think he wasn't their king? He was buried in the valley of the kings and he had his tomb built like any other pharaoh. Yeah I guess pharaoh is a preety funny name because it meens palace in their language
