Submission + - Tutankhamun died from broken leg and malaria (dailymail.co.uk)

arnodf writes: Scientists have finally discovered how King Tutankhamun died, nearly a century after the boy-pharaoh's tomb was unearthed in Egypt.

A DNA study revealed today the 19-year-old died from complications from a broken leg that was exacerbated by malaria.

It also found the famous king suffered from a cleft palate and club foot and was a 'frail king who needed canes to walk.'
