Correct Answer: A curse believed to have killed those who disturbed Tut’s tomb

Fact: Soon after the discovery of King Tut's tomb, the excavation's patron, George Herbert, 5th Earl of Carnarvon, suddenly died of an infection. His death gave rise to stories of a 'Mummy's Curse,' alleged to be cast upon those who dared violate the mummy of an ancient Egyptian, especially a pharaoh. Some even blame the curse for the death of the lead excavator of Tut's tomb, Egyptologist Howard Carter, although he lived more than 16 years after the dig.
