Tutankhamun has fascinated the public worldwide since the discovery of his tomb in 1922. He died at age 19 and the circumstances surrounding his death, which ended the most significant dynasty in Egyptian history, have remained a mystery and a topic of frenzied debate. Using state of the art genetic sampling, medical research and CT scan analysis, this special sheds a new light on his death and family history. And as it does so, it reveals that the young boy king was not all he seemed.
Tutankhamun: The Truth Uncovered will air on the 26th of September on BBC One.
