The head injury is also what one would expect if he had fallen backwards out of a charging chariot. This is the theory, i support it makes more sense when the whole of the timeperiod is considered.

Hi i am currently doing a debate on the murder of king tut. Bob brier writes of his view of Aye as the culprit, does anyone know of a historian who disagrees of Bob Briers opinion and any books they may have written concerning another suspect?
Thank you

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Tutankhamen, the last pharaoh of the XVIIIth dynasty, died unexpectedly at approximately age 18 years. A cause of death has never been established, but theories that the young king was murdered by a blow to the head have been proposed based on skull radiographs obtained by a team from the University of Liverpool in 1968. We recently had the opportunity to evaluate the skull and cervical spine radiographs of Tutankhamen. The purpose of this study was to report our critical appraisal of the radiographs of Tutankhamen regarding the findings alleged to indicate traumatic death.

METHODS: Copies of lateral, anteroposterior, and submental vertex skull radiographs of Tutankhamen were reviewed with special attention to the claims of a depressed skull fracture, intracranial bone fragments, and calcified membrane of a posterior fossa subdural hematoma. A phantom skull was radiographed to reproduce the appearance of the floor of the posterior fossa in the lateral projection.

RESULTS: The skull radiographs of Tutankhamen show only postmortem artifacts that are explainable by an understanding of the methods of mummy preservation used at the time of his death. Some findings also relate to trauma inflicted by an autopsy performed in 1925. The alleged calcified membrane of a posterior fossa subdural hematoma is easily reproduced with a skull phantom.

CONCLUSION: Our critical review of the skull and cervical spine radiographs of Tutankhamen does not support proposed theories of a traumatic or homicidal death.

Please take particular notice of the conclusion. Personally, I believe he was killed in an accident or a victum of a skirmish.

Many think that he was murdered. There are three prime suspects as to who killed King Tut. One is Horemheb. He was the Military Commander and Chief, Ay was the Prime Minister The last but still capable suspect was Ankhesanamun she was Tut’s All of these people could be capable of Tut’s murder.
Upon a closer inspection of the pharaoh’s body showed a spine disease. Finding this under the x-rays in the year 1968 opened new doors to king Tut’s death. So the question now is, was Tut murdered of was it just a disease that was at the time considered to be incurable? Sure now we have back braces and other things for spine disease back when king tut had it there were no cures for it.
thats why he was killed. :D

Wow you solved the mystery of Tut's death!!!!...and all in two small paragraphs! Many years of investigative work by hundreds of Egyptologists and you just pop on here and solve it for us like that.

Thank you so much!

I am still sceptical about the spine disease. I know that there were a lot of sticks found in his tomb but of all the pictures I have seen only one picture shows any disablity in that generation, and that is of Smenkhare resting on a walking stick with his wife next to him.

I believe that it was probably Ay who had the most to do with the death of Tutankhamun.
When you consider the suspects it seems that he had the most to gain from the death of the boy king. He could have taken full power from the king, and the his successors would be of his blood.

However, it may have been that Horemheb and Ay plotted together perhaps? Horemheb would have known that if Ay died as Pharaoh without a newborn son he would succeed.

This is part of the results of a x-ray examination of Tutankhamen's mummy.
CONCLUSION: Our critical review of the skull and cervical spine radiographs of Tutankhamen does not support proposed theories of a traumatic or homicidal death.

There is absolutely NO evidence of a sudden death brought about by murder.
All of the things that have been hyped as "evidence" of murder can also be attributed to an accident, probably involving a fall from a chariot, although the missing sternum suggests a poorly begun embalming--perhaps far from Egypt, on a military expedition. This would also explain the heavy use of ungents--masking offensive odors from the body.
It's very romantic for us to think of the murder of a helpless, attractive young man with a beautiful, loving wife. But the truth might be far from that dream. As is said, the jury is out on the subject.

Part of me wants to dismiss the murder theories as inflammatory rubbish but I still have niggling little doubts. It seems strange that Ay replaced Tutankhamun so quickly, even though Ay had absolutely no claim to the throne other than being the possible brother of a queen and Tutankhamun's grandfather-in-law. The disappearance of the Hittite prince also seems rather suspicious. If it is true that Tutankhamun lingered for several months before he died then I think it is doubtful that he died away from Egypt in a possible military expedition. It seems far more likely that Ay had enough power and motive to have a part in the death of the Pharaoh. maybe he wasn't the one who dealt the fatal blow but perhaps he is the one who made sure that the Pharaoh died from his wounds. If we look at history in general and rulers who have been murdered we often see a similarity. People who had become rulers at a young age and grown up with regents are far more likely to be murdered as they come of age than an older ruler is. If we think of the deaths of the Ptolomaic kings, Ptolemy XIII was killed as he began to weild more power and Ptolemy XIV disappears around the same age he would begin to weild power. In Britain we have the "Princes in the Tower", two brothers murdered in the middle ages so they could never become the rulers of England. One of the last emporers of china was allegedly murdered by his regent, the Empress Tzu-Tschi so he could never take away the power she had amassed in his youth. It seems that if Tutankhamun did die by natural causes I think it is more than likely that someone sped him on his way.
