CAIRO Egypt's famed King Tutankhamun suffered from a cleft palate and club foot, likely forcing him to walk with a cane, and died from complications from a broken leg exacerbated by malaria, according to the most extensive study ever of his more than 3,300-year-old mummy.

Married to a donkey, he’s my favorite honkey.
Sometimes it really doesn’t help to be the king.

Thanks for posting this. I was watching FNS a little while ago, and whoever the idiot is that writes the crawl had Tut suffering from malaria which caused him to have a broken leg. I am not making that up.
Born in Arizona, moved to Babilonia - got a condo made of stone-a.
AP would have us believe a cleft palate requires the use of a cane.
So the beautiful gold & turquoise striped funeral masks were a sham. They didn’t represent even remotely how he looked.
Sounds like the kid didn’t get the bear too many days....
He’s lucky he was born centuries ago.... with a cleft palate and club foot he would be aborted now, king material or not!
Maybe he’ll come back to life with an army of skeleton warriors and disrupt La Cage aux Folles.
It’s amazing what passes for writing today, isn’t it?
i ahve read three books on this, two said he was murdered, and one said what the article said.
the whole in the head threw everybody off.

Perhaps this is why he does not appear in any of the family pictures.
