Express : Amazing discovery about the daughters of King Tutankhamun
The site indicated that it is surprising that the tomb of King Tutankhamun, one of the great leaders of Egypt, was 100% intact when Howard Carter found it in 1922 and was untouched by grave robbers.
The site pointed out that one of the most important films that dealt with the story of King Tutankhamun’s tomb, which revealed many secrets of ancient Egypt, was the Smithsonian Channel’s documentary film called “Secrets… Tut’s Last Mission.”
The site indicated that the film talked about finding mummified mummies of two babies inside the tomb, which surprised the researchers, who later confirmed, after DNA analysis, that they were mummies of girls and that they were probably the daughters of Tutankhamun.
The website confirmed that their remains are currently preserved in the Grand Egyptian Museum in the hall dedicated to the young king, Tutankhamun, and his belongings.
Both were stillborn, according to the website, one at around four months and the other at practically full time.
Professor Salima Ikram, an Egyptologist at the American University in Cairo, said: “There was a high mortality rate among infants and children in the ancient world, which is not surprising, but it is unusual that they were carefully mummified, wrapped, and placed in a cocoon, so it appears that these two mummies are taken care of. Which indicates that they are the daughters of the king”
