Tutankhamun’s mask was discovered in 1925 in a tomb, which was discovered in 1922, in the Valley of the Kings located in Egypt. The mask is covered in gold and paint, serving as the death mask for the late Tutankhamun, the ancient Egyptian Pharaoh of the 18th Dynasty.
Tutankhamun, also referred to as King Tut was the last Pharaoh in his family to rule during the 18th Dynasty. He took the throne at only eight (or nine) years. Tutankhamun married to Ankhesenamun, his parental half-sister. In his reign, Tutankhamun restored the Ancient Egyptian religion which had previously been dissolved by his father. However, despite his accomplishments, Tutankhamun was severely disabled and is theorized to have a multitude of different medical conditions. The discovery of Tutankhamun’s grave, along with the Mask has been one of the biggest and most important discoveries regarding the ancient Egyptians.
