Pharaoh's Curse

In the early twentieth century, archaeologists discovered several pyramids in ancient Egypt. In them, they found several texts, among them, one that said: "he who would disturb Pharaoh's eternal sleep" would die. A few days after entering the pyramids, some archaeologists died strangely and without explanation. Fear spread among many people as newspapers reported that the "curse of the pharaohs" was making victims.

However, after some studies, it was found that archaeologists died because they inhaled, inside the pyramids, deadly fungi that attacked the organs of the body. Science has managed to explain and demystify the issue.

Rameses was one of the greatest pharaohs Egypt ever had. He ruled for 70 years, perhaps no pharaoh has ruled so much. It was a great builder and a great fighter. Rameses died at about 90 years old and had at least 90 children. When they studied Rameses's mummy, they saw major problems with their teeth. You may have died of infection.
