Tumba de Tutankhamun.

A Tumba da Décima Oitava Dinastia é mundialmente famosa por causa de seu túmulo real relativamente intocado do Vale dos Reis.

túmulo de Tutankhamun 

The Tomb of Tutankhamun (ca. 1336-1327 BC), the Tomb of the Eighteenth Dynasty, is world famous because of its relatively untouched royal tomb in the Valley of the Kings. In 1922 Howard Carter's discovery made headlines around the world and continued with gold and other luxury objects found in this tomb. The tomb and its treasures are emblematic of Egypt and it remains a major archaeological find to this day to uncover the tomb.

Despite its wealth, Tutankhamun's tomb, number 62 in the Valley of the Kings, is actually very modest in terms of size and decoration compared to the other tombs at this site. This is most likely because Tutankhamun was young and only in office for about 10 years.

It is worth asking what the much larger tombs, such as Hatshepsut, Thutmosis III, Amenhotep III and Ramesses II, of the greatest kings of the New Kingdom ever contained.
There are no further decorations on the walls of the burial chamber. Tutankhamun's tomb is only a single scene, unlike most previous and later royal tombs, richly decorated with burial text such as the Amduat or The Book of Gates, which contributed to the afterlife of the deceased King. The rest of the tomb decoration depicts the funeral, or Tutankhamun, along with the different deities.

In any case, the small size of the tomb meant that the artifact was about 3,500. That tiny tomb of Tutankhamun (KV62) led to a great deal of speculation. After the death of his successor, the high official Ay, a tomb (Kv23), originally intended but not yet completed, was buried to Tutankhamun at the time the young king died. In turn, the same argument was made for the grave of Horemheb, Ay's successor (KV57). If so, it is unclear for whom Tutankhamun's final tomb, KV62, was carved, but it has been argued that there was already a private tomb or storage area that was then enlarged to receive the king.
However, the small size of the tomb meant that the approximately 3,500 artifacts discovered within it were stacked very tightly. This reflected the lifestyle of Tutankhamun's royal palace with artwork, toys, vessels made of a variety of materials, carts, armed devices, and other items such as clothing, gems, cosmetics, incense, and furniture, chairs, and arms.

 Tutankhamun, a relatively small king born out of history by being associated with the unknown King Akhenaten, came to surpass many of Egypt's greatest rulers. It is one of the great ironies of history.
Once contained 2,500 meters (500 m), Thutmose III and Amenhotep III.
