Whoa! Slow down a bit. All of this conjecture about who killed Tut is just that--conjecture. We have NO--zero, nada--evidence that Tut was murdered. The only thing in the least suspious is the particle of bone found in his skull. But even that may have been just a piece of the nasel cavity, which was pierced at the time of embalming to remove the brain. As far as any evidence of a blow to the head, there is none--only wishful thinking on the part of dreamers.
The fact I find interesting---the sternum and part of the ribs were missing, and the body showed evidence of starting to decay. What about this scene? There is some evidence that he led the army on some missions. What if he was killed in a fall from a chariot, and run over, smashing his ribs and crushing his sternum by a following chariot. If he was away from Egypt with his army, the body would be taken back to Egypt for burial. In the time it took to return to Egypt, the body may have started to corrupt. The sternum and ribs were so badly damaged, the priests preparing the body for burial removed and discarded them. After mummification was complete, he was buried in a hastily prepared tomb, that had been intended for another burial, but was pressed into service for Tut. With a couple of minor robberies, 99% of his burial was found by Carter in the 20th century. Only a theory, but plausible--more so than his "murder".

First thank you for reminding folks that most of who murdered Tutankhamun is conjecture with no facts supporting it.
2nd most of the damage to the Pharaohs remains are credited to Howard Carter himself. Why? Because the amount of resin used to cover the Pharaoh harden and the only way to remove it back in 1924 was with a heated knife. It is said that Carter was burtal in his operation to remove him from his coffin. I have never heard of this corruption of the body or of the ribs. As for his dying in or near battle i do believe. Egypt lost an important battle just about the time of his death. Possibly the reason why Horemheb didn't inheirt the throne as planned? Who wants a loser as Pharaoh? I would appreciate your sources on the ribs and corruption. If you want mine on Carter's butchery i will be happy to get it for you:)

If Tut was killed in a chariot accident or even murdered, wouldnt it make sense that we would have evidence like drawings or writings about it? Thats what confuses me.

Sekmet, this is the official report of the CT scan:
http://www.egyptologyonline.com/ct_scan_report.htm

I stand corrected. There is NO evidence of any corruption of the body. The CT scan team was divided on if the missing ribs/sternum was the result of embalming or Carter. Other than the broken leg bone, there seemed to be no trauma--as in accident--to the mummy at all.
Although murder, as in a blow to the head, has been ruled out, Dr. Hawass said to me that there is always the possibility of poison. Any traces that may have been left in the corpse would be obliterated by the embalming process.
As he said, the body is that of a normal healthy young man--who happened to be dead!

Thank you Osiris, it is so nice to see you again. It is always an honor to be able to discuss something with Dr. Hawass.

Pharaohkel - according to Egyptian monuments no bad thing ever happened -to Egypt for example no Pharoh in history ever lost a battle.
Also we do not have many records for the period so if it was written down i.g. in records of a trial they would almost certainly have been lost.

There isn't much to tell about Ankhsenamun. Her name was, originally, Ankhenpaaton, and was one of Akhnaten and Nefertiti's daughters. Married to Tutankhaton. When he became king, his name was changed to Tutankhamen and hers to Ankhsenamun. At Tut's death, it it thought that she wrote to the Hittite king requesting one of his sons in marriage, saying she "refused to marry a servant". The Hittite king sent a son, but he died before reaching her. She married her grandfather, Aye, thereby establishing his right to rule. All traces of her disappeared shortly after this marriage. Her tomb has never been located, nor any of her grave-goods. She MAY have been murdered, but it's more likely she died of the plague which was ravishing the area at that time.
