Who was King Tut? by Roberta Edwards( Book )

9 editions published between 2006 and 2016 in English and Spanish and held by 1,700 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

I 1922 fant arkeologen Howard Carter graven til Tutankhamon som han hadde lett etter i flere år. Før funnet var det svært få som hadde hørt om Tutankhamon, men i dag er han blant de mest kjente faraoene. Tutankhamon besteg tronen allerede som 9 åring, og giftet seg med halvsøsteren sin. De fikk ingen barn som overlevde, men det ble funnet to lik i graven hans som kan være deres dødfødte døtre. Han var ingen betydningsfull eller mektig hersker, og døde på mystisk vis etter 11 år på tronen, bare 19 år gammel. "Hvem var ..." serien handler om kjente personer og deres utrolige liv. Mennesker som forandret verden, fant opp nye ting, dro på spennende reiser, skrev, malte, sang, hersket eller gjorde en heltemodig innsats. Bøkene er lettleste og er illustrert med svart/hvitt illustrasjoner. Faktabok for mellom-/ungdomstrinnet. Omtalen er utarbeidet av BS
