Etymology[edit]

While appearing as a single word in modern Western languages, the name actually consists of Egyptian 𓇋𓏠𓈖𓏏𓅱𓏏𓋹𓋾𓉺𓇗 ‎(Twt-ˁnḫ-ỉmn, living image of Amun).

Alternative forms[edit]

We only know the letters mn of the last word in the name, as the Egyptians only wrote down consonants and no vowels in their writing system, so various people fill in various vowels.

Proper noun[edit]

Tutankhamon

  1. Egyptian Pharaoh known for his young age, for the restoration of Egyptian religion, and for being the only Pharaoh whose tomb was preserved intact to the modern age.
