WIFE KV21A When tomb KV was found in , two well- preserved female mummies lay inside. Vandals later ripped them apart. Preliminary DNA results suggest that the one now missing her head (below) could be the mother of at least one of the fetuses from King Tut's tomb. If so, she is most likely Ankhesenamun, a daughter of Akhenaten and the only known wife of Tutankhamun. An ivory-paneled box (right), also from Tut's tomb, shows him with his beloved queen. New information about his health suggests that he probably needed to use the staff he holds as a crutch.
