Tutankhamen, the famous “boy king” of ancient Egypt who ascended the throne as a child, died when he was around 19 years old, sometime between 1327 B.C. C. and 1323 a. C. But Tutankhamen’s death was unexpected and he left no heirs to the throne. So who ruled in the power vacuum that followed?

After king tut died, a pharaoh named Ay (also spelled Aya) ascended the throne and ruled for about four years until he died.
