Facsimile of tomb[edit]

Under the chapter "Tomb" one should add a section "Facsimile" with the information found in http://en.egypt.travel/news/id/409 — Preceding unsigned comment added by Res Gerber (talkcontribs) 17:40, 13 May 2014 (UTC)

Minor spelling error[edit]

"One of the more common hypothesis...", under Parentage, should read "One of the more common hypotheses...", or "A common hypothesis..."

Tutankhamun's mummy[edit]

I was just wondering whether Tutankhamun's mummy really needs a seperate wikipedia page all by itself? It isn't very long, and surely would be a useful subsection of this article? I wrote on the talk page over there a few months back and didn't get an answer - I guess I should have written it here. I think that when people search for Tutankhamun they expect to find information on his mummy. Would it be sensible to merge it in here? Obviously somebody down the line decided it needed its own article, so perhaps there is a good reason - I'd be interested to hear everyone's thoughts on this.--Cutiekatie (talk) 22:17, 16 March 2014 (UTC)

King Tut[edit]

this is totally false i looked it up on google and got some TRUE info and i looked at all these and there wrong — Preceding unsigned comment added by 128.123.113.105 (talk) 00:56, 4 December 2014 (UTC)

It should say, in [some] Anglophone countries, he is popularly known as King Tut. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.126.129.196 (talk) 18:01, 24 April 2014 (UTC)

If you could be bothered to read the article you will see that it does say just that in the opening paragraph. IdreamofJeanie (talk) 18:57, 24 April 2014 (UTC)

Please note that there were NO men Pharaoh's. Only women could be called a Pharaoh. Per-Aa was one of 5 houses (Per meaning house) and this term was the "high house" where the woman lived.

So the Egyptologists are all wrong? Tell you what, go change our article Pharaoh to meet your definition - you'll need to explain things such as "The earliest instance where pr-aa is used specifically to address the ruler is in a letter to Amenhotep IV (Akhenaten), who reigned c. 1353–1336 BCE, which is addressed to 'Pharaoh, all life, prosperity, and health!"

Red question icon with gradient background.svg Not done: it's not clear what changes you want to be made. Please mention the specific changes in a "change X to Y" format. Cannolis (talk) 02:24, 17 September 2014 (UTC)

There should be a change to the last sentence under the subtitle 'Genealogy', which states, "An autopsy and genetic evidence in 2014 proved that Tutankhamun was the product of a brother-sister marriage.[27][28]". These findings were already discovered in 2010 (as earlier stated in the article) so this is not new information. There is also no evidence to support the idea that Tutankhamun's parents were married. Therefore it should be changed to, "A further autopsy and genetic evidence in 2014 re-confirm the findings from 2010 - that Tutankhamun was the product of a brother-sister relationship.[27][28]".

Please can you change "An autopsy and genetic evidence in 2014 proved that Tutankhamun was the product of a brother-sister marriage.[27][28]" to "A further autopsy and genetic evidence in 2014 re-confirm the findings from 2010 - that Tutankhamun was the product of a brother-sister relationship.[27][28]".

Yes check.svg Done. I tweaked the wording slightly. Martinevans123 (talk) 15:52, 28 October 2014 (UTC)

Haplogroup[edit]

So what haplogroup did Tutankhamun belong to? --165.165.75.236 (talk) 12:54, 1 December 2014 (UTC)
