I agree with you completely on that subject, Neb. You've made a very good argument in favor of Tut's later death.
And I also agree completely that it is a period that has more theories and "what if's" that any other time in the Egyptian calendar. It's possible just to go on and on...
Step by step into the Amarna Tar Pits!

Ahhh...The Amarna Tar Pits...a phrase you first coined on the egyptsearch site!

You are right, the story can take so many turns you might end up in Mongolia!

For all we know Tut could have been a son of Anen the brother of Tiye, and son of Yuya and Tuya. With no legitimate male heir to the throne, an arranged marriage between Ankhesenpa'aten and Tutankhamun would legitimise his position, it would also keep the reign "in the family". I have never looked into this but the thought just popped into my head as I was typing this post.

Who knows? There are crazier theories out there. Like...um....Akhenaten and his family being aliens from another planet...I kid you not! This would explain the elongated heads...ha!

Yes Neb, there are thousends of books and articles about strange theories...let's keep our feet on the ground....according to some new theories we can reach proving that the Graal lies just under our chair...it's not something to discuss about, but to laugh!...at least this is my idea...

I think one of my favorites, something that astounds me everytime I read it, is the idea of Akenaten being Moses, and Tutankhamen Jesus! I kid you not--I've actually read that on the web!

Yes! I have a book by Mustafa Gadalla called Historical Deception: The Untold Story of Ancient Egypt.

He makes some wild claims. It is quite interesting to read his theories, but I think he lacks the evidience to support many of his claims. His comparsions to figures and passages from the bible to Ancient Egyptian figures are stretching it a bit at times but it is worth reading about other theories out there so you can be better arm yourself for the search for truth.

He started his own foundation called the Tehuti Research Foundation. Here is a link to his site. Scroll down to section 2 and click on the link to the book I mentioned to get a synopsis.

...ehm...I was referring to Osiris II...
I'll look at that site later...of course he cannot sustain his theories with proves....no evidences existe that can prove those one....If he's working with fantasy, well everybody can do that, everybody can have his own opinion about some events....no?

We really need some advise for our movie project on king tuts death,
it is made up so just give us some suggestions for these two things.
tut also has a crazy son[its made up]


should we have the crazy son [Kleria] kill Tut?

should we have the wife who hates tut for always egnoring her and he also slapped her?

Or should king tut kill himself as a sacrofice to the other gods to be rewarded in the after life?[/b][/i]

I think you should get out of the movie business...that's what I think! Why would you make up such story lines? Why not stick to historical facts? They are much more interesting!

1. Tut's only two children died as infants.

2. I would say Tut didn't ingnore his wife and she most likely didn't hate him as can be seen by the many representation of them together shown in a loving manner. Read about the Amarna letters and you will also see why she did not murder her husband.

3. Sacrifial suicide to appease the gods was not a concept of the Ancient Egyptians, certainly not for a Pharaoh!

Do yourself and humanity a favor, and pick up a book for God's sake! Read about the REAL Tutankhamun and the events of his life and form your own opinion of his death based on the facts that you've read. When discussing his death, there are plenty of angles to choose from but none of them involve a murderous, wife, son, or sacrificial suicide.
