FilmThe following is based on the canceled Fallout movie and has not been confirmed by canon sources.

Tutankhamun, Tutankhaten or more occasionally Nibhurrereya, was a pharaoh of the Ancient Egyptian 18th Dynasty, ruling for nine years from circa 1332 BC – 1323 BCE.[1]


Tutankhamun was nine years old when he became Pharaoh and reigned for nearly ten years. In historical terms, Tutankhamun's significance stems from the fact that his reign was close to the apogee of Egypt as a world power and from his rejection of the radical religious innovations introduced by his predecessor and father, Akhenaten. Secondly, his tomb in the Valley of the Kings was discovered by Carter almost completely intact: the most complete ancient Egyptian royal tomb ever found.[2] However, although in the Fallout film treatment Max explained that Vault 13 entertained a similar amount of hype as the opening of Tutankhamun's tomb, it cannot be certain that Howard Carter and the Earl of Carnarvon's team were responsible for this discovery in the Fallout universe.[3] As Tutankhamun began his reign at such an early age, his vizier, and eventual successor Ay, was probably making most of the important political decisions during Tutankhamun's reign.[4]

His death has also been a feature of great controversy, as some strongly suspect he was murdered.[5]


Tutankhamun is mentioned only in the Fallout film treatment.
