Storyline

"Tut" reveals, for the first time on television, the story of the Egyptian Pharaoh, one of the most renowned leaders in human history. This ambitious special-event series tells the story of Tut's rise to power and his struggle to lead Egypt to glory, while his closest advisors, friends and lovers scheme for their own nefarious interests. "Tut" opens up a fascinating window into a world filled with heart-breaking romance, epic battles, political backstabbing, conspiracy, jealousy, and even murder - proving his world was not far removed from our own - and that his reign as the youngest Egyptian king played out as a real-life drama for the ages. Written by D. Schwarz

Trivia

Tut is believed to have died from complications following an accident that was consistent with being thrown from one chariot and being run over by another. He had serious injuries to his trunk and a compound fracture of one of his legs. MRI and CT analysis of his mummy shows the injury, which did not heal, indicating it was perimortem. DNA analysis also shows that he repeatedly suffered from the most severe type of malaria. There was coriander in his tomb, a spice used to treat fever during his time. Tut had a malformed bone in one of his feet, possibly genetic, that probably caused him to limp. He was buried with many canes that were used, as evidenced by wear. It is supposed that Tut was injured during a hunting expedition, possibly a chariot accident. Having been weakened by malaria, it is thought that he developed an infection from the broken bone and leg injury that overwhelmed him causing his death. It is possible he had internal injuries that contributed, however the hasty and poorly performed mummification process, which included a disproportunate amount of scented oils that caused decomposition. His organs, which were stored in canopic jars, were not able to provide any discernible evidence. See more »

Goofs

The Mitanni are shown as much darker than the Egyptians. This is unlikely: their kingdom was in what's now south-east Turkey, Northern Syria and Northern Iraq. See more »

Little Bit Disappointed
4 August 2015 | by nickluytenSee all my reviews

I read several of the reviews to see anyone said what I was gonna say and didn't look like it so far so here goes.

I noticed that allot of people really liked the show, I also thought it was pretty good, but I got the idea the reason for that is, that it's actually Hamlet from Shakespeare with an Egyptian outfit. For those who don't know Hamlet, The Lion King was also the story of Hamlet. Try to see if you find any similarities. You will find many.

I did enjoy watching it but I was hoping for a series about ancient Egypt, but except for looking Egyptian it had nothing to do with ancient Egypt so that's why I'm a bit disappointed. There is very little known about Tutankhamen but a few things they do know like who is parents where Ikhnaton and his sister who's name is unknown. they introduced Monotheism during there rule. When Tut became Pharaoh the old gods where reintroduced, probably the clergy took advantage of the young naive pharaoh but none know's, would have been nice if at least there was something about that in the series.
