The biggest scam of the last century … read onwards.

Why did scientists claim that Pharaoh Tutankhamun’s father was Moses?

From the pen of Gerald O’Farrell, a very dubious theory came to light, which he explains in the book The Mystery of Tutankhamun. This theory goes so far as to make Moses identical with the historical ruler, Pharaoh Tutankhamun’s father, Pharaoh Ehnaton.

The discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb was the greatest sensation of the 1920s and has remained so for decades. On the one hand, the story of the young pharaoh was a web of mysteries and intrigues, while two English-minded gentlemen, Howard Carter and Lord Carnarvon, made an inventory of the finds for ten years, while the discovery of the tombs did not go smoothly.

According to several theories, it was a simple grave robbery, and the surrounding myth and curse may have been part of a propaganda that was a series of pre-planned murders and the disappearance of eyewitnesses was the main motivation.

Gerald O’Farrell goes straight to the point where Carter lost scrolls from Pharaoh Tutankhamun’s tomb and damaged the tombstone and himself because he wanted information lost.

It was already known that Carter forged documents, manipulated photos, and wrote reports for the Egyptian Archaeological Office because he wanted to send most of the treasures found to America and Britain. Incidentally, it is worth noting that Master Carter was a collaborator of Heinrich Schliemann – German archaeologist who led the excavation of Troy, who also smuggled treasures home in a similar way.

In recent decades, several treasures kept in various institutions have been found to come from Tutankhamun’s tomb. The Metropolitan Museum has about 20 works of art from Tutankhamun’s tomb in its collection. The Brooklyn Museum owns a statue of a girl, an ointment spoon and a blue glass vase.

Many scholars have already explained the relationship between biblical figures and pharaohs. However, the most interesting theory appeared in Ammed Osman’s famous book, Moses, Pharaoh of Egypt.

He rightly claims that Pharaoh Ehnaton was an existing person, but the existence of Moses is questionable historically. On the other hand, there is ample historical evidence to support that the pharaohs may have been biblical Jewish patriarchs. Or Ehnaton was the first pharaoh to introduce the cult of Aton, monotheism, and it was among his teachings that salvation is available to all.

According to Gerald O’Farell, Howard Carter and Lord Carnarvon are not as heroes as we have considered them so far. He calls them downright ordinary grave robbers and history forgers.

We’ll never know how many artifacts Carter and Carnarvon have attributed and what happened to them, but we can be sure that if even a slight part of it was true, there was hardly a crime in history that would have ended in such a spectacular result.

I can’t promise that you can find anything evidence from Moses at the exhibition, but quite a few of Tutenhamon’s treasures can still be seen in the KOMPLEX @ Budapest. Tickets are available in limited numbers at known ticket offices or on the spot.
