The Mystery of King Tut’s death seems as if it will never be solved. How did a young boy die without seeing the world, and taking on Egypt? There is lots of speculation on how King Tut died. But, researchers are finding out what might just have killed the nineteen year old King Tutankhamun.
Researchers are saying that King Tut died of a fractured leg. In New York Times, it said, that Tut had some diseases in his leg. One of them was Köhler’s disease II, which wouldn’t kill him by itself. There had to be another factor towards his death. The second disease he had was avascular none necrosis.

He could have been knocked unconscious then stabbed; perhaps even poisoned.” (King Tut Mystery Evidence-3 ppt.) I disagree that King Tut was murdered. If he was knocked out or stabbed, the researchers would have found damage in his brain or body. It is very clear that he had some kind of virus or a fractured leg that killed him.
