It was announced that ancient Egypt had not found a long-suspected secret subdivision in the grave of the pharaoh Tutankhamon, who died at a young age.
The Egyptian authorities explained that they were 90% sure that a 3,000-year-old child, King Tutankhamon, had a secret room behind the grave wall.
According to a tale, Queen Nefertiti had a tomb in the secret chamber. Some researchers think that Nefertiti is Tutankhamun's mother. However, recent research has revealed that there is no such room behind the grave.
The investigations for the secret division began after the British archaeologist Nicholas Reeves found some evidence on the wall.
Reeves argued that the small grave was originally designed for Queen Nefertiti, and that the bones could be found in this grave in the article "Nefertiti's Defni" in 2015.
Nefertiti's body was never found, but it was the subject of speculation for many years.
Nefertiti became one of the most famous women of ancient Egypt, thanks to the statue of the queen in a very good condition of 3,000 years. It is also believed that Nefertiti's husband may have ruled Egypt before his death and Tutankhamon's throne.

Tutankhamon's death, which is about 17 years old when he died, is still a mystery. It is thought that he might have been killed or died from a wound he had taken during hunting.
