King Tut, one of the greatest and youngest Pharaoh’s that existed within Ancient Egypt. He became Pharaoh at the age of nine. One of the most recent questions asked about this pharaoh, is how did he die at such a young age? Historical investigators may never know exactly what killed Tut, but there is evidence suggesting what might have occurred. Some theories which can point to the king’s death include, of king tut’s x-rays of showing he got damaged in his body.

And if it was common for Chariot races why wouldn 't a 9-year-old?

Conclusion
In conclusion this is why I think king tut 's could have died at such a young age I think my three theories with evidence is well proven with good facts and good evidence it has been viewed by scientist and doctors
