FC: King Tutankhamen's Early Life
1: A Tutally Different Childhood
2: King Tut was born in the city of Akhetaten in Egypt.He was most likely born in the year 1343 B.C. His father was the ruler of Egypt when Tutankhamen was born. He lived in a grand palace his whole life. His life was lavish and he had many luxuries.
3: Modern day children's parents usually have a job where they work in an office, a school, a shop, or any other place. Kids usually live in reasonably sized house. The houses may have eight or none rooms.
4: King Tut grew up in a brand new palace in Armana, Egypt. His palace was covered in gold, silver, bronze, and falence.
5: Children today most likely live in a two-story house with about eight rooms. Most modern day people have hard wood floors, drywall walls, and either wood or bricks on the outside.
6: King Tut's main hobbies when he was a child were swimming, hunting, studying, and playing board games. He found politics and religion boring and thought his father's speeches about Egypt pointless. He didn't listen listen to these speeches, but instead, he day-dreamed about exploring and discovering new lands.
7: Most children today also find politics boring. They mostly spend their time watching TV or playing team sports or just reading. King Tut was very active and modern day children are too, but they spend some of their time not being active. | Politics are so boring!
8: When Tut was a teenager, he raced chariots and hunted. He wasn't allowed to participate in these activities when he was a child because they were considered "dangerous."
9: Most teenagers spend their day visiting the mall or texting their friends. They occasionally play group sports, but that is the most "dangerous" activity they participate in.
10: King Tut was always sick. It was believed that King Tut was born ill, so he had to walk with walking canes throughout his life. He never had the medical care to make sure his health was adequate.
11: Most children in modern times are never ill for very long. Medicines and health care systems have improved dramatically since King Tut's time. Hospitals and medical facilities are always near by today. If someone is injured or needs medical care, they go to the hospital and are treated.
12: King Tut became Pharaoh why he was only nine years old. He was the only boy in his family, so he had to take the thrown. In ancient Egypt it was considered bad form and bad luck if a woman was a pharaoh.When king Tut took the throne, he had to marry his half sister who was thirteen years old.
13: When most children are nine, they play with their friends, go to school, and join a few group activities. Most nine-year-olds couldn't imagine getting married, let alone rule a country. King Tut had to deal with very difficult challenges as a child.
