The Depressing Story of King Tut

Devin, you rant a lot about things that no one cares about, you say. And while you may be rude, you’re also right! But what is the one thing that I like more than bitching about my incredibly ordinary life?

HISTORY!

So strap in, because we’re going to learn some things. Join me on a journey back to the days of ancient Egypt where the awkward preteen boy king reigned. That’s right, this is a callout post for King Tutankhamun; affectionately and lazily referred to as King Tut by white people who don’t know how to pronounce anything in any language, ever.

So King Tut, the boy king, that wee little rascal, took the throne from his super crazy deadbeat dad at the age of 9 and died when he was 19 years old. The Egyptians then did what Egyptians do and mummified him and stuck him in a tomb that was totally cursed and filled with riches. Rad, right? Well, the world moved on and people forgot about King Tut until some English archaeologist (and I use this term very loosely because archaeology during this time period was more about drunkenly blowing stuff up than preserving priceless artifacts) by the name of Howard Carter discovered the sarcophagus of old Tuts in 1922. Carter, needless to say, was fucking stoked.

Scientists examined Tut’s body and decided that he had died from a severe case of hit in the god damn head-itis due to the very obvious damage to the mummy’s skull. They then patted themselves pompously on the back for their astounding detective work and the Western world marveled at the body of a dead boy on display. (And apparently no one was like, hey guys this kind of a messed up hobby?) Years later, however, due to advances in modern science and DNA testing and maybe a little witchcraft, who’s to say really, it was revealed that the boy king had broken his leg and contracted an infection very near to his death. He also had malaria which could have contributed to the perfect storm of “you’re fucked” that killed the guy.

His sarcophagus might say royalty, but those eyes say, “HELP ME.”

But let’s be real, King Tut was doomed from the start. His father got it on with his own sister because, like so many weirdos in the past, they wanted to keep the royal bloodline “pure”. How could they have possibly known that diddling their siblings could have such catastrophic results? (trick question, the answer is OF COURSE IT HAD CATASTROPHIC RESULTS). So little baby boy Tut, whose father was also his uncle and whose mother was also his aunt, was born with a cleft palate and a club foot. It’s also speculated that he had a degenerative bone disease that attacked his foot and made his limp more pronounced which caused him to use his scepters as actual walking sticks, instead of the more common use of looking rad as hell; which is evidenced in the uneven wear at the bottom of said scepters.

So anyway in his tomb, we have King Tut, all of his organs and riches, and his super extensive collection of walking stick/scepters that probably didn’t fool anyone, but then we ALSO have the bodies of two mummified babies. Now, I’m sure in 1922 Howard Carter took in the tiny bodies and shrugged before eloquently making a noise that means, “hell if I know” and getting rip roaring drunk to celebrate his discovery. Because who wouldn’t put it past ancient Egyptians to just leave dead baby bodies lying in random tombs, right? Maybe they were cursed mummy babies, which I assume was a thing if the 1999 blockbuster “The Mummy” starring Brendan Fraser is, in fact, historically accurate.

Those mummies didn’t stand a chance against that jawline. They probably swooned to death, amirite?

But it turns out that when Tut took the throne, he followed in his dear old dad’s footsteps and married his own half sister who gave birth to two of his beautiful dead children because INBREEDING PEOPLE. So King Tut and his 16 and Pregnant sister wife had tried to produce an heir, but both of their daughters were stillborn, which left Egypt in quite a bind once Tut had kicked the bucket.

So King Tutankhamun, worshiper of the old gods and boy king, led a very short and somewhat tragic life that people couldn’t seem to NOT be obsessed with. Sort of like when you pass by a car wreck and you can’t help but crane your neck to look… only with more incest.

Listen, I want you to remember the way you feel today doesn’t have to be temporary. If you trust yourself. If you listen to your intuition. If you don’t waste your time catering to somebody else’s belief systems, if they don’t serve you. Don’t waste your energy living in fear of somebody else’s judgement. And don’t waste your time explaining yourself to people who are not equipped to understand.
