You Won’t Believe What Some of These Famous and Infamous Figures Actually Looked Like
It’s always weird seeing how our favorite book characters are depicted when a movie adaptation is made, but what about historical figures? Many of the ancient historical figures we learn about in school and in the movies looked way different than we ever imagined! Check out these images of famous and infamous historical figures created using modern technology.
The famous boy Pharaoh who presided over Egypt from 1334 – 1324 BC is famous for becoming ruler at the age of just nine! Archaeologist Howard Carter and other researchers used using CT, DNA testing, and thousands of digital scans to discover what the young ruler actually looked like. He passed away at the young age of nineteen, and they figured out why. All of the inbreeding to keep the family lineage “pure” actually created a host of diseases and malformations in the young Pharaoh.
