Throughout history of mankind, there have always been figures that stood out. If their names have stood the test of time, then clearly they accomplished something significant during their lives. Before photography, the only way to immortalize their faces was through paintings, sculptures, or portraits. But just how accurate were these depictions? Researchers have recreated what historical figures may have actually looked like using modern technology. Some of the results may truly surprise you!
King Tutankhamun was the pharaoh that ruled Egypt between 1332 and 1323 BCE. His time ruling ended when he died, and like many of his contemporaries, was mummified. His remains were found 3200 years later, perfectly preserved, in 1922 by Howard Carter.

After experts took DNA samples and conducted research, it was found that the pharaoh was quite frail. He had a bone disorder, broken leg, malaria, and a club foot. Perhaps that it why he is usually depicted sitting down.
