Summary
Both born to power and wealth, and raised by courtiers, they lived lives of aristocrats and landowners, in poor health and with uncertain futures. Though they lived over 3000 years apart, the lives of Egyptian King Tutankhamun and the fifth Lord Carnarvon share many parallels, not the least of which was Carnarvon's sponsorship of the team that found the pharoah's tomb in the Valley of Kings. Brian Fegan's narrative expertly weaves these two lives together, showing similarities and differences between these two powerful men
