Humanitites notes
King Tutakhamen’s tomb was discovered on 4 november, 1992. His tomb was found in the valley of the kings.
The valley of kings is a valley in egypt where for a period of nearly 500 years from the 16 to the 11th century BC tombs were constructed for the rharaos and powerful nobles of the new kingdom. the valley of kings lie’s on the west bank od nile.

there had been about two robberies before the middle ages
based on the items that were robbed, like oils and perfumes and the restoration of the tomb after the intrusions, it seems pretty clear that these robberies took place within several months of the initial burial. http://science.nationalgeographic.com/science/archaeology/valley-of-the-kings/ http://history1900s.about.com/od/1920s/a/kingtut.htm

King tut’s tomb was intact but still is believed to be robbed twice King tut’s tomb was found by howard carter. It was found on 1922 november 4 The tomb had been undisturbed for more than. 3000 years

It was said that who ever opened the tomb not a single one of them is still alive and that was the curse but it is a believe for some people and thats why its not fact. http://history1900s.about.com/od/1920s/qt/kingtut.htm
