The discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb was a worldwide event, the mysterious deaths that followed made the headlines, but the most important secret remained hidden because it undermined the project to create a state.
This article explains why, despite the many discoveries linked to the translation of Sumerian or Egyptian hieroglyphic tablets that call into question the origin of the Bible, nothing is disclosed to the public.

The curse of Tutankhamun or the murders?
For almost a century now, a sinister halo has flown around the name of the pharaoh-child Tutankhamun.
Since Howard Carter discovered the tomb – officially on November 27, 1922 – the people most familiar with the details of the discoveries have all died, inexplicably, within a few years.
About 5 months after the discovery of the tomb, the one who financed the company, Lord Carnarvon was bitten by a mosquito on his cheek. Following this commonplace incident, his health conditions deteriorated to the point of death by sepsis.
It was then Lord Carnarvon’s half-brother, Aubrey Herbert, who died inexplicably in 1923, following a simple dental extraction!
The Canadian archaeologist La Fleur, who arrived in Egypt in April 1923 – in perfect health – to help Carter in his work, died just a few weeks later of a mysterious disease.
It was still in 1923 that Georges Jay Gould, a close friend of the Count of Carnarvon, died of a strange lung inflammation.
Just one year later, in 1924, the famous archaeologist Evelyn White, who had collaborated with Carter to write the inventory of the pharaoh’s funeral trousseau, expired in his turn.
He was found hanged, and the police concluded that it was a suicide.
A few months later Douglas Archibald Reed, the English scientist who had been commissioned to take the x-rays of the pharaoh’s mummy, lost his life under unclear circumstances.
In 1926 the “curse” touched Bernard Pyne Grenfell, the eminent papyrologist consulted by Carnarvon for the translations of Egyptian texts.
Lord Carnarvon’s private secretary, the noble Richard Bethell, was found dead in his bed in 1929 following an unusual case of cardiac arrest.
Bethell had helped H. Carter in the work of cataloguing Tutankhamun’s treasures, and the cause of his death has always remained a mystery…
Lord Westbury, R. Bethell’s father, died just a few months after his son, “jumping” out of the window of his London apartment.
The police quickly classified the case as suicide. In his room was an alabaster vase from the infamous tomb of Tutankhamun, a precious object that did not appear on the official list of discovered objects.
The vase had therefore to have been looted during the first clandestine opening of the crypt… and this implicitly revealed that the former nobleman had most certainly been made aware of the background to the discovery directly by his son.
The Egyptologist Arthur Cruttenden Mace, the scientist who collaborated with Howard Carter in 1922 to restore the tomb, also died of a “strange evil”.
Before Mace died, he had been very close to Lord Carnarvon, and he had contributed to the writing of the volume “The Tomb of Tut.ankh.amon” with H. Xarter.
But already at the beginning of 1923, Mace began to complain about a very poor state of health that led him slowly but inexorably to his death on April 6, 1928.
In 1929, the “curse” affected Lady Almina, Lord Carnaron’s wife, and – as had already happened before for her husband – the cause of death was officially attributed to infection.
The very wealthy Egyptian prince Ali Kemel Fahmy Bey, who had been very interested in the secrets of the tombs and positioned himself as a potential buyer of the looted treasures, was found dead in 1929 under circumstances that were at best obscure.
The crime was committed in a London hotel, and the English police quickly closed the case attributing the homicide to his wife.
The brother of the murdered Muslim prince also died by chance of violent death.
In his case too, the death was quickly archived by the police as suicide.
The Honourable Mervyn Herbert, Lord Carnarvon’s second half brother, died in 1930 in Rome under strange circumstances.
The same “bad fate” for the Egyptologist Arthur Weigallm who had actively collaborated with Carter, Carnarvon and the rest of the team during the excavation work.
In 1933 he was struck by an “unknown fever”, which quickly led him to his death. However, no one considered it necessary to request a judicial inquiry into this matter, and the newspapers of the time preferred to find an explanation for these mysterious deaths in a fortuitous series of coincidences, or even in the rumour that a terrible “curse” of the pharaoh had massacred the scientists involved in the discovery.
And the more casualties the “curse” caused, the more the press fuelled an atmosphere of ever more dense and growing superstition, which gave rise to one of the most famous modern legends in the world, which has also been the starting point for many successful novels.
Subsequently, the event was made even more suggestive by the addition of impressive anecdotes about some of the harmful omens that would have occurred on the day the crypt was opened.
For example, there was a rumour circulating that, when the last worker’s tomb was pulled out, a disturbing sandstorm broke out just in front of the tunnel leading to the tomb.
This supernatural event was followed by the appearance on the horizon of a majestic falcon (symbol of royal authority in ancient Egypt) directed westward, the place where the ancient Egyptians thought the souls of the dead were going.
In addition to the story of this episode – of which there is no historical “proof” – there are other ever more fantastic stories, which ended up scaring the pages of tabloids all over the world.
One of the most unlikely episodes concerned precisely the death of Lord Cararvon, which occurred at 1:55 in the morning: it is said, for example, that at the precise moment when the British nobleman expired, all the lights in the city of Cairo would have gone out.
A harmful omen that would also have resulted from the death of his dog. Some improbable witnesses even told that the poor beast, before dying, was still screaming in terror, because she perceived the presence of a hostile entity haunting her.
And as the list of the dead grew longer, the news media continued to feed the legend with any “supernatural” circumstance capable of confirming the story of the curse, according to which Tutankhamun had succeeded in avenging the desecration of the royal tomb, by killing all the authors of the “sacrilege”.
Rather than see that there were clearly targeted assassinations!
But something was not right in all these accounts: Howard Carter, the main person responsible for the expedition, and the actual discoverer of the tomb, remained strangely immune to the consequences of the “terrible punishment”.
The real circumstances in which Carnarvon lost his life, however, remain rather obscure, since even some time before his death the British nobleman showed quite clear symptoms of poisoning.
The Count, after contracting the alleged lethal infection, began to suffer inexplicably from the fall of his teeth and their continuous erosion, which are typical consequences of arsenic poisoning.
But, as shown by the chemical and bacteriological investigations conducted in the grave the morning after the official opening, this substance was totally absent from Tutankhamun’s funeral chambers.
The death of Mace, who had worked closely with the discoverers of the tomb, also left strong doubts, which are confirmed by Mace’s biography, published in 1992 by the writer Christopher C. Lee.
In this work, we find the text of a letter written by Mace on January 14, 1927 to his old friend A. Lythgoe.
In the letter Mace revealed that his abysmal health conditions were caused by mysterious arsenic poisoning.
But on how Mace could have suffered such lethal poisoning, the biographer could not provide plausible explanations.
Behind the curse of Tutankhamun, a secret to hide
The American writer Arnold C. Brackman, in his book “The search for the gold of Tutankhamun” (1976), said he was convinced that at the time of the opening of the tomb the only archaeological discovery that could have constituted a “serious political and religious scandal” were the historical documents dating back to the time of Tutankhamun.
Brackman suggested that thanks to them it would have been possible to irrefutably demonstrate the close relationship between the first monotheistic pharaoh in history, the “heretic” Akhenaten (now attested as the father of Tutankhamun) and Moses, the Jewish legislator who, in the Old Testament tradition, “led the people of Israel out of Egypt”.
To confirm this hypothesis we find an important testimony from Lee Keedick, which the writer Thomas Hoving reported verbatim in his 1978 volume, “Tutankhamon – the untold story”. keedick recounted having attended a lively discussion between H. Carter and a senior British official, who appeared in 1924 at the British Embassy in Cairo.
During the stormy struggle Carter threatened to publicly reveal “the boiling contents of the documents he had found in the grave”, documents which – according to Carter himself claimed – “told the true and scandalous account of the exodus of the Hebrews from Egypt”.
However, it would seem that at the end of the discussion Carter found an advantageous agreement to keep quiet, and in fact, since then, these papyruses have magically disappeared…
Tutankhamun’s secret: missing documents
The existence of these objects is recorded and catalogued during the drafting of the first official inventory, but it was noisily denied by Howard Carter – when it was already being talked about everywhere – shortly after Lord Carnarvon’s sudden death (the one “due to a mosquito bite”).
Carter explained that he had incorrectly classified some of the pharaoh’s bandages as papyrus, due to the lack of electric light in the crypt.
But his explanation was definitely very fragile: if it was a simple misunderstanding in the cataloguing, the members of his team should have noticed it very quickly, given the interest that in the meantime the precious documents had aroused.
Carter’s obvious lie therefore had the opposite effect to that desired: instead of forever burying the news of the discovery, Tutankhamun’s “missing papyrus” became the object of mockery and speculation, which turned into real doubts, when it was confirmed that Carter and Carnarvon had more than once made false statements to the press.
It is also known that the two protagonists of the discovery had stealthily entered the tomb’s premises before its official opening, looting many objects of funerary furniture that belonged to the pharaoh on occasion.
A confirmation of the discovery of papyrus can be found in a letter that Cararvon sent in November 1922 to his friend, Egyptologist Alan H. Gardiner. In the reserved letter Lord Carnarvon described in detail the objects found in the tomb, and among other things he stated “there is a box with some papyrus inside”.
This presence was later confirmed by a successive letter from Carnarvon to Sir Edgar A. Willis Budge, the guardian of Egyptian antiquities at the British Museum, dated 1 December 1922.
In the letter Carnarvon claimed to have found in the crypt of the pharaoh some document of great historical importance.
The existence of papyrus was also confirmed by one of the official reports that left Luxor daily during the excavations.
In the telegraph dispatch sent by Arthur Merton on November 30, 1922, it reads:
“…one of the boxes found in the tomb contained rolls of papyrus from which we can expect to find masses of historical information.
As is well known, in the case of a major archaeological discovery, the discoverer avoids making official statements until he has been unable to verify the authenticity of his own discovery from top to bottom.
It is therefore unlikely that 4 days after the discovery, no member of the team has yet taken the time to perform the verifications.
We also know that Howard Carter never denied the statements made by Lord Carnarvon, and both the inventory and the first version of the facts were changed only after his death.
According to some sources, the Count of Carnarvon even confirmed the discovery of the papyrus in an interview given on 17 December 1922 – 21 days after the official discovery – to a special envoy of the Times.
Important later clues come from Egyptologist Alan Gardiner, who at the time was made aware of the discovery by Lord Carnarvon himself, and who published his own opinions on the actual value of the findings on the “Times” on 4 December 1922.
In the interview Gardiner said:
“My preferences lead me to be particularly interested in the papyrus box that has been found…
On the other hand, these documents could in some way shed light on the change from the religion of heretics (i. e. the Pharaohs of El Amarna) to the previous traditional religion, and this would be extraordinarily interesting…”.
The “scandalous” history of Israel
Although most of the great historians have no access to the precious documents, they have now reached a step towards solving the mystery surrounding the historical period of Tutankhamun (son of the heretical pharaoh) and the birth of the Jewish people.
These findings confirm the rumours that were leaking, at the time when even Howard Carter admitted to some witnesses in a heated discussion, that the real secret to hide was about Israel’s history.
The most recent studies conducted in this field show that, in all probability, the people of Israel derive their origins from the racial mixture between the Hyksos Semitic tribes and the other ethnic minorities who followed the heretical pharaoh Akhenaten with his priestly caste Yahud.
Already at the time of the Napoleonic occupation of Egypt, scholar Jean-François Champollion suggested the existence of a close link between the Old Testament and the Egyptian period of El Amarna and its monotheistic pharaoh.
This is therefore a hypothesis already widely shared in the past by illustrious Egyptologists, and even confirmed by Sigmund Freud.
The father of psychoanalysis, who was Jewish, had thoroughly studied the sacred texts in search of the true origins of the Jewish people, and at the end of his research he had written:
“I would like to risk a conclusion: if Moses was Egyptian, and if he transmitted his own religion to the Hebrews, it was the religion of Akhenaten, the religion of Aten”.
Other illustrious researchers of Jewish origin, such as Messod and Roger Sabbah (“The secrets of the exodus“), have reached the same conclusions about the origins of the Jewish people.
New archaeological discoveries have therefore forced researchers to drastically review their own positions.
For Robert Feather, author of the book “The Last Mystery of Qumran”, the “Dead Sea Scrolls” (the “scrolls” were hidden in the Qmran caves by the Jewish community of the Essenes) are of Egyptian origin, and he explains in his book that much of the writing of the Old Testament is actually attributed to the priestly caste of the heretical Pharaoh Akhenaton (Amenophis IV), the Yahuid priests.
These affirmations are to be related to the latest theories, which identify the first tribes of Israel with the Shasu – Hyksos (Semitic ethnic group originating from the Mesopotamian zone), who adopted the powerful Egyptian priestly caste of the Yahud under the guidance of the monotheistic monarch Amenophis IV/Akhenaton, who ruled during the period when the biblical Moses would have lived.
While the patriarch of the Hebrew Abraham, if we look at the biblical sources, came from the city of Ur (later Babylon and now Baghdad), and therefore had Mesopotamian origins (See link given at the beginning of the article on the Sumerian and Egyptian origin of the Bible).
Akhenaton and the neglected history of his people
Northern Egypt was invaded by the Shasu – Hyksos around the 17th century BC, and their kings established themselves as legitimate Egyptian pharaohs during two dynasties, the 15th and 16th.
The Hyksos were a culturally very advanced Semitic people, with advanced military technology, such as the powerful Mesopotamian war tanks (tanks, heavy cavalry, helmets and breastplates), to which they most certainly owed their rapid military successes.
In the end, however, the Hyksos kings were defeated and definitively driven out beyond the Nile delta, while some of their people were captured and forced into slavery.
The Hyksos refugees thus passed from the status of dominator to that of prisoner, and their permanence in Egypt extended for about 400 years: the same period of time indicated by the Bible as “Egyptian captivity of the Hebrews”.
With the arrival of the heretical pharaoh Amenophis IV (who renamed himself Akhenaten), the Hyksos minority converted to the monotheistic cult of Aten, following the fate of his brief reign.
What happened after the fall of Akhenaten? This is not yet very clear, because the regents who succeeded him erased all traces of it in history.
The biblical exodus thus appears to be undoubtedly connected to the vicissitudes of the heretical pharaoh Akhenaten (the only ones that guarantee them a historical foundation), who established the new monotheistic faith devoted to the worship of the ineffable Aton God.
It was to him that Akhenaten dedicated the construction of an entire city, Akhet.aton (then El Amarna), the place where he gathered his new people around the worship of the sun.
There has been much debate about the heresy of Aten, a monotheism that was in fact very atypical and contained within it, without denying it, the Egyptian polytheistic complex.
Many scientists therefore prefer to use the term “henotheism”, explaining that Aten would not have been the only deity, but rather the supreme god whose veneration could have replaced all the others because they derive from it.
Among the converts to this form of monotheism were also the ethnic minorities then present in Egypt, which when united in the cult of Aten gave rise to the birth of a cosmopolitan and multiracial people, of which members of Semitic origin constituted the majority.
Within this new nation there were also typically African races, such as the Ethiopian Falashà who still claim their Jewish origins today.
However, once Akhenaten’s reign over Egypt ended, the latter returned to the African region of belonging (Ethiopia), thus separating their destiny from that of the other heretical survivors.
The two exoduses – the historical one of the monotheistic pharaoh Akhenaten on the one hand, and the biblical one of Moses on the other – were verified exactly during the same historical period, to the point that the two narrative events result from stories that could be completely superimposed on each other.
The Bible itself also informs us that Moses grew up like a prince at the court of the Pharaohs, after being found in a basket floating along the Nile (story imagined from that of Sargon I).
A fabulous episode that has the incomparable flavour of a literary invention intended to justify the patriarch’s presence in the pharaoh’s house.
It therefore seems obvious that the scribes of the Old Testament wanted to seal the true origin of Moses and his people to their own ancestor.
Tutankhamun: the investigation of Messod and Roger Sabbah
What now seems certain, in any case, is the correspondence between the multi-ethnic exodus that occurred in El Amarna at the end of the reign of Akhenaten in Egypt and the one described in the Bible with the figure of Moses.
Among the many pieces of evidence collected over the years, some are particularly significant, such as Old Testament Psalm 104 : according to the most widespread interpretation among secular scientists, Psalm 104 is none other than the re-elaboration of the “Great Ode to Aten”, a text that the heretical pharaoh himself had written (The Great Ode to Aten was found in the tomb of Pharaoh Ay in Akhet-Aton /el Amarna).
According to the reliable interpretation of Messod and Roger Sabbah, in addition, the Hebrew term “adonai”, used to say “my lord”, translated into the language of Egyptian hieroglyphics corresponds to the word of Aton, while some of the scientists translate it as adon-ay, (or Aton-Ay) ie, Lord “Ay”, the name of the first successor to Akhenaton.
Even the controversial origin of the Christian prayer of the Our Father (“Our Father who art in heaven…”), notwithstanding what the Catholic Church suggests, seems to be, according to some scientists, a religious anthem that goes back to ancient Egypt, precisely to the period when the cult of the Sun God was in force (from which terms such as “the most high” or “the Lord of heaven” were born).
A century ago Albert Churchward, a scientist and mythology expert, said:
“The Canonical Gospels can be considered as a collection of statements taken from the myths and eschatology of the Egyptians”.
Much more recently, the co-authors of “The Secrets of the Exodus”, Messod and Roger Sabbah, have managed to defend the same thesis based on a rigorous examination of the oldest sources we have at our disposal, such as some sacred texts written in Aramaic.
In this way they avoided consulting texts already translated or distorted by previous interpretations, recovering the precious original meaning. (It is good to know that Aramaic did not use vowels, and translating it always means one way or another interpreting it at one’s own discretion.)
The authors carried out a rigorous and thorough exegesis work, which took advantage of the reliable hermeneutical studies of Salomon Rashì, a medieval Hebrew translator well known and respected even in the Orthodox Jewish milieu, especially because he became the exclusive repository of their lost oral tradition.
Roger Sabbah, Egyptologist, archaeologist and researcher made incredible discoveries with his brother:
In Tutankhamun’s tomb, opened in 1923, there were inscriptions written in unusual hieroglyphics, some letters resembling the Hebrew alphabet in form, pronunciation and symbolic value.
The coincidence, at the time, did not move anyone.
No more than this: on a wall of the tomb, the double “cartouche” (the engraved signature) of an obscure pharaoh, Ai, whose name, in hieroglyphics, resembles that in the Aramaic Bible, of God, pronounced Adonai (Aton-Ai).
And, at the entrance to the treasure room, guarding the tomb, lying on a chest, the dog Anubis (or Anapi): in Hebrew, “Nabi” means “guardian of the law”.
Dog and chest were covered with a sacred cloth reminiscent of the Hebrew prayer shawl. The stretcher chest, on the other hand, could be similar to the “Ark of the Covenant” as described in the Bible.
Arguing these similarities – there are many others – the Sabbah brothers reread the texts from top to bottom.
They deduced from this that the Hebrew language was derived from hieroglyphics, which are stylised.
And, from then on, everything became clear: the enigmas of the Bible, the names with strange consonances because they were foreign, the characters, the History.
Tutankhamun: the secret of box n°101
Once the historical importance of the papyrus that may be present in Tutankhamun’s tomb has been clarified, it is possible to return to examine the evidence that suggests that they were occulted, while the reason why these documents were, and are still considered, politically explosive should become increasingly clear.
Let’s leave the event of discovery aside for a moment, and take a brief step back in history.
The Birth of Zionism
Zionist ideas began to spread within the Jewish community through the publications and speeches of Binjamin Ze’ev, better known as Theodor Herzl.
Theodor Herzl went down in history as the official founder of the World Zionist Organization, a movement that bases its propaganda on two fundamental issues: the concept of the “Jewish race”, and its essential link with the Promised Land, Eretz Israel (which does not mean “Land of Israel” in the geographical sense, but Land of Jacob’s descendants, i. e. “Israelites”).
The Zionist lobby was never any kind of political movement, because it could count from the beginning on the exclusive support of strong powers of the time.
The financial support of the future Jewish settlers was provided by the historic summit of the eminent bankers and freemasons held in Basel in 1897, during the work of the First Zionist Congress.
The congress was chaired by Baron Edmond de Rothschild, who put on the agenda the birth of a credit institution whose main purpose was to support the Zionist cause.
Zionists, for their part, despite the lack of both historical and biological foundation, sought by all means to validate and disseminate the concept of the “Jewish race”: an ideology that found its propaganda in works like those of Vladimir Jabotinsky (one of the greatest historical activists of revisionist Zionism).
Indeed, precisely because of the integration process that was actually under way at that time, they considered that the ethnic purity of the Jews was in serious danger, arguing that the only possible solution to this problem was the construction of a Jewish state.
At this point it is not difficult to imagine how the possible dissemination of the contents of the papyrus, which rewrote the historical root of the origin of the Jewish people, would have served the Zionist cause in a probably lethal way.
As has already been said, at that time the cause had not yet met with great success. It was only in the 1930s, with the coming to power of Adolf Hilter, that Zionist politics began to achieve a broad consensus within the Jewish community itself.
Following the anti-Semitic propaganda of the German dictator, many Jews readily accepted the proposal to move permanently to Palestine, initiating this consistent immigration program that later led to the birth of the Jewish state.
Paradoxically, then, the Fuhrer’s policy of racial segregation worked in favour of the Zionists who were pushing for mass Jewish emigration to Palestine.
History still needs to clarify in depth the different points of contact that actually occurred between the Nazis and the Zionists in this paradoxical convergence of interests.
We are therefore faced with a third hypothesis, to try to explain the impressive series of suspicious deaths that is at the root of this event: statistical chance, the curse of the pharaoh, or “human intervention”, aimed at preventing the diffusion of the contents of the precious papyrus?
This article clearly suggests the third hypothesis, but there is no concrete evidence to justify this accusation against the Zionists of the time.
There is, however, a curious connection, difficult to ignore: the presence of Baron Edmund de Rothschild in the circle of people who first knew the truth about the boiling content of the documents.
The eminent banker enjoyed a privileged information channel, being a direct relative of Alfred de Rothschild, the financier who covered the debts of the disinvested Earl of Carnarvon. A.
De Rothschild, in turn, was the natural father of Carnarvon’s wife, Lady Almina, the daughter of Marie Felice Wombwell, a woman legally married to the English George Wombwell.
This degree of kinship between one of the members of this famous family and Lady Almina – who is also among the victims of the “curse” – is clearly reflected in the memories of the VI Earl of Carnarvon, and it is therefore obvious that, if a historical account of the true origins of the Jewish people had really been found, an influential member of the Zionist lobby like E. Rothschild would certainly have known it.
