Vote up the facts about King Tut that make you say "wow, really?"

King Tut - or Tutankhamun - is one of the most famous mummies and ancient Egyptian pharaohs of today. But in reality, much of his health and life has been shrouded in mystery. When his tomb was found in 1922, a lot was unknown about this seemingly lavish ruler. Over the years, there have been many speculations made about what life was like for Tut, including his dress based on findings within his burial site. 

In recent years DNA testing has been conducted and we now know more than ever about his genetics, cause of demise, and life. That by no means states that all of this information is common knowledge. In actuality, people are constantly learning Tutankhamun facts - and his life is more bizarre and tragic than most would imagine.
