Egyptian mysteries

Patrick Bernauw: Had the spectre of an Egyptian Princess something to do with the Curse of Tutankhamen? And why this story had to be revealed by an occultist named "Cheiro", wich is Greek for "hand"? And what was this story all about concerning a mummy on board of the Titanic?

The ancient Egyptians were so obsessed with the Cult of the Dead that they turned the fruitful valley of the Nile into a Valley of Death. A soul could not enter the blessed region of Osiris unless the body remained intact in the place where he lived on earth. To violate a tomb or remove a mummy from its coffin was a terrible act of desecration. So the solemn ceremonies of the entombment included some awful curses, inscribed upon the walls of the death chambers.

Count LouisHamon was actually an Irish proletarian named William John Warner. There are no "Gates of Osiris" which would be an attempt to lower Osiris to Peter. Osiris was a God and Pharaohs were becoming him if they passage to the other world was successful.

Does anyone check a history book (or even spend 10 minutes with Google at reputable sites) before posting some of these?

Meketaten died when she was between 12 and 16 years old - I doubt she ever led a revolt against her father at that age. Additionally, most historical references point to her having possibly died during childbirth. Which, if true, would probably put her closer to 16 when she died. She was definitely not murdered by her father, as there is the distinct possibility the child may have been his!

Beketaten is considered by most historians to be Akhenaten's sister - the theory of her being his daughter (though believed by some)has no historical proof to back it up. She also is suspected to have died young, though the year of her death is unknown.

Recent archeological finds indicate that Tutankhamun was most probably Akhenaten's son, possibly by his secondary wife, Kiya.

More recent studies of the "Amarna Letters" also tend to dispel the notion of Akhenaten's portrayal as a ruler who ignored foreign affairs at the expense of his kingdom.

Also, I can't find any historical references to uprisings against Akhnaton, except in a play, "Akhnaton", written by, of all people, Agatha Christie.

Additionally, he did not lose "most" of Syria - he lost the province of Amurru was lost, because its ruler defected to the Hittites.

The story of the mummy on the Titanic has been debunked so many times that its reference here further increases my doubts as to the veracity of the author's main article.
