King Tutankhamun is most famous of the ancient pharaohs, yet King Tut lived a less regal life, one defined by physical handicaps and related suffering. The video below delves into details revealed by a "virtual autopsy" conducted thousands of years after his death.

In ancient Egypt, the pharaoh was thought to be a physical embodiment of divinity. As a result, royals felt a need to keep the throne within the family bloodline, resulting in a lot of inbreeding over many generations.

The cost was high for royal children like Tutankhamun. When modern scientists conducted a high tech autopsy on King Tut's remains, they confirmed that the ruler suffered from several conditions caused by his inbred heritage. 

His "pure blood" meant a painful life and an early death for Tutankhamun. The Egyptians also believed that as long as the memory of a pharaoh lives on, however, the king remains safe in the afterlife, and there's no way you're going to forget about King Tut after watching this video.
