No one is certain of the exact cause of King Tutankhamen's death, but scholars know that the young royal was physically frail. In addition to a club foot, he had an infection in his left leg, which was broken, and suffered multiple bouts of malaria infection. Since pharaohs tended to marry their family members, genetic problems caused by inbreeding may have contributed to his early death. Though scholars initially believed that a hole in the back of his skull was evidence of foul play, research in 2005 indicates that embalmers made the hole during mummification.
