Bibendum
The sumptuous treasure is made up of more than 2 000 pieces, including the throne, the famous gold mask and the beetle pectoral. Tutankhamun's treasure has been the talk of the town since it was discovered by Howard Carter in 1972, especially as the circumstances surrounding the death of the Pharaoh, who died prematurely at the age of 19, were shrouded in mystery. Recent DNA tests have finally revealed the cause of death and reestablished Tutankhamun's line of descent: he is indeed the son of Akhenaton with one of his secondary wives (one of his sisters) and not Queen Nefertiti.
