On November 4, 1922, the entrance to the tomb of Tutankhamen (now mostly known as King Tut, hence the punish nature of the title) is discovered by Howard Carter and his men. Funnily enough, his only major find in his career is the major find of that era in the Valley of Kings.
Our Man Tut was born around -1341, and died at the age of 18. During that short life, the son of Akhenaten actually ruled for 9 years. 3000 years later, he is more famous in our world than most of the other Pharaohs in his dynasty.
