People look at the mummy of Tutankhamun's mother (an unidentified queen whose mummy was known as "The Younger Lady") at the Egyptian museum in Cairo on February 17, 2010. New research has revealed that the boy king Tutankhamun died of malaria after a fall, used a cane, and was the son of the monotheistic Pharaoh Akhenaten, Egypt's antiquities chief Zahi Hawass said.
