Thats exactly what the leading theory is to, there was a lot of bad blood when Tuts daddy died and I cant even imagined what happened to Nefertiti or Akhnenaten (or however its spelt correctly I have a headache and dont feel like checking) But they figure his High priest who brought back the old religion and ran the country behind a curtain for Tut along with his Vizier and General Hormheb plotted to take the throne Now Two minor suspects are the cupbearer and the king’s attendant. They are likely to be among the few that could approach the king without orders and or go into his bedroom when he was asleep. However there where other possible suspects including Another possible suspect could be General Horemheb. He was the powerful army officer that eventually ascended to Tut’s throne. Horemheb was trusted by King Tut. It has already been proved that the Hittite prince on the way over to Egypt to marry Ankhespaton (tuts wife she dident want to marry Aye and wanted to remain queen so she sent away to marry this prince) was murdered. Guess who sent orders to have him killed? Horemheb. He was the head of the military and he ordered soldiers to kill the prince. As an army official, Horemheb would be dishonest to investigators in order to keep his job. He wanted the prince dead so that Ankhespaton would have no choice she would have to marry Aye. Later Horemheb did his best and succeeded in erasing Ankhespaton, Aye, and King Tut from the Royal Book of Kings and Queens. If you look at the tomb paintings it shows Hormheb n loving imbrace of Tut as if he is covering up a cime! The last and most reasonable person who would want Tutankhamen dead would be Tut’s grandfather and also the vizier of Tut, Aye. He was very jealous that Tut became king when he was only nine years old. A lot of evidence shows that Aye is a very reasonable suspect of killing Tut. After Tut’s death, Aye refused to start an investigation. He didn’t bother to research the dramatic story about Tut’s death and he advised other people not to either. Since people don’t know who murdered Tut Aye and Horemheb most likely were working together. phew that was a lot of typing I got most of this info from Bob Briers book

I have heard that King Tut was killed by a high priest. I heard, not really belived, that he was killed by a high priest who was trying to take over. He is called "I" because his name was erased from every tomb. It's just something I heard...I actually thought it was funny. :rainbowafro: (afro! woot woot!)

Thats what I was so confussed about. They had it on the history channel a while back and when they talked about the whole "i" thing I was really confussed. O well, the whole debate about how King Tut really died is so confussing.[/quote]

there are no vowels but there are weak consonants which is

which the the vulture, the quial chick, the reed leaf , and double reed leaf which are tranalated a the sounds ah , uw, i(short i sound) and y.

They are sort of like vowels. the vultures symbol actual sound is not actually known so ah is often used.

Is it possible that the "I" they were talking about was Aye? (Sounds similar)

I wonder if he (Tut) couldn't have had a chariot accident.

Has anyone ever heard of damage to his body besides the splinter that was dislodged from his skull?

Yes, I had heard that he was so covered in a sticky substance that they had to pry him out of his sarcophagus. I thought they applied heat, or at least heated knives. to get him out.

I was referring to some statements about possibly his sternum or other parts missing. I can't remember where I heard that. It was related to the fact that he is often depicted with a cane, and several walking sticks were found in his tomb, raising the question of Tut having some handicap.
If he was infirm, then some accident becomes more likely.

Did anyone read this article on tour egypt?
http://touregypt.net/featurestories/killtut.htm

There are several theories there I had never heard about. Including: brain tumor, poisoning, murdered by unsavory character called Tutu.

They mention some inscription on a statue of Horemheb
Quote:
"Egyptian brothers, don't ever forget what foreigners did to our King Tutankhamen"


Is Horemheb trying to imply that Tut was assassinated in some foreign plot?
