Where is Pharaohs’ missing treasure?



The discovery of King Tutankhamen’s tomb in 1922 revealed the fact that he had been buried with many worldly jewels and riches. However, this was not the first the people had heard about royalty being buried with much of the wealth that they had acquired during their life. It was well-known that the Pharaohs of Egypt were usually buried with many of their gems and precious stones and it’s always been better-known that these tombs were often raided by many thieves and criminals. This proved to be true in the 19th century when many of these tombs were unearthed and were found to be completely empty. However, not all of the thefts in the Valley of the Kings, which is where the Pharaohs are buried, could have been done by a common thief as the skill required to get into the different graves and completely empty them was very great and thought to be more than a common thief could handle.

One theory suggests that priests who oversaw burials took all of the wealth from these graves. In those times, the taking of the ancestor’s riches by the priests was not condemned as it was considered that this money was to be used for the church and was therefore, fine for the priests to collect and was a known and accepted activity. However, after it was discovered that the tombs of the Valley of the Kings were empty, the ruler Herihor became an obvious suspect. When Herihor gave up the throne, he joined forces with his son-in-law, Piankh and the two quickly took control of many of the people of the now divided kingdom. Herihor became the one who oversaw the reburials and this would have given him many opportunities to take from the different graves. What makes the story even more interesting and mysterious, is the fact that Herihor has never had his tomb discovered and so, should it ever be found, so might all of the wealth of the Pharaohs past.
