Egypt’s Pharaoh Khufu died of an unexplained cause. His rule began in about 2589 B.C. and lasted until 2566 B.C., according to consensus. Due to the fact that little records from that period have survived, information about Khufu is restricted.
Khufu, whose full name was Khnum-Khufu, is best known for the Great Pyramid of Giza, also called the Pyramid of Khufu. The pyramid was likely constructed during his reign, and its initial function may have been to house Khufu’s tomb. The majority of specialists assume that Khufu was buried within the pyramid, but the precise location of his remains is uncertain.
