A lot of ink has been spilled covering the lives of history’s most influential figures, but how much of the forest is lost for the trees? In Charles River Editors’ Legends of the Ancient World series, readers can get caught up to speed on the lives of antiquity’s most important men and women in the time it takes to finish a commute, while learning interesting facts long forgotten or never known.
Tutankhamun: he who is the living image of the god Amun, the image of rebirth, one of perfect laws, who pacifies the two lands, one who has raised the crowns, the pacifier of the gods, the god Ra is the possessor of forms; Tutankamun, Tut-mesut, Neferhepu-segerehtaui, Wetjes-khau-sehetep-netjeru, Nebkheprure. These are the names and titles of a king who died at a young age, and who is today remembered as one of Ancient Egypt’s most famous rulers.
The mere mention of his name, Tutankhamun, brings to mind visions of gold and splendour, and thoughts of a majestic kingdom. The reality of this once king is something quite different; his fame has less to do with his position in history and nearly everything to do with the discovery of his tomb by Howard Carter in 1922. .
There are many questions and mysteries still surrounding this famous king of Egypt. Who was Tutankhamun? Where did he come from? What was his kingdom like? How did he live and die? And why is his name so closely associated with images and thoughts of Ancient Egypt to the modern mind? These are just a few of the questions that have been asked by scholars and the general public alike concerning the young ruler during Ancient Egypt’s New Kingdom Period. Some do have answers whilst others may only be theorized.
Legends of the Ancient World: The Life and Legacy of King Tutankhamun looks at the known and unknown about the Ancient Egyptian king and attempts to separate fact from fiction to analyze his life and reign. Along with pictures of art depicting important people, places, and events, you will learn about Tutankhamun like you never have before, in no time at all.
