Try to imagine a young boy stands in a temple filled with burning incense as he waits for a priest to place a glittering crown on his head. This ritual is part of the coronation ceremony that will make the nine-year-old pharaoh of ancient Egypt. His people will call him by his royal name: King Tutankhamun. You probably know him as just King Tut. He ruled the country at a time of conflict, when battles over land raged between Egypt and the neighboring kingdom of Nubia.
