The Curse of Pharaoh Tutankhamun, Does It Really Exist? - The story of Tutankhamun's curse actually began to appear in 1922, it was when the British Egyptologist, Howard Carter, explored the mummy of Pharaoh Tutankhamun.

This excavation was funded by Lord Carnarvon. Suddenly on April 5, 1923, seven weeks after the opening of Tutankhamun's tomb, Lord Carnarvon died.

This led to a speculation about the possibility of the curse of Tutankhamun, which applies to anyone who dared to enter his tomb.

Lights in Cairo were said to have died out at the death of Lord Carnarvon.

Lord Carnarvon's dog named Susie is believed to be howling and dying at the same time.

Five months after Carnarvon died, his sister also died. In addition, Howard Carter's pet canary is eaten by cobras.

Arthur Conan Doyle, creator of Sherlock Holmes then speculates that Carnarvon's death might have been caused by the Curse of the Pharaoh.

But this speculation never get a strong foundation because there are several facts that refute the curse.

One of them was Howard Carter, the inventor of the tomb of Pharaoh, who only died 17 years after entering the tomb.

The daughter of Lord Carnarvon, who was also one of the people who entered the tomb, died in 1980, at the age of around 79.

Harry Burton, official photographer for Howard Carter died in 1940.

Dr. D.E. Derry who conducted an autopsy on mummy Tutankhamen also died almost 50 years after the discovery of the tomb.
