But amid the frustration his colleagues, Howard Carter remains optimistic that his estimates were correct that the Pharaoh Tutankhamen must have been buried in the valley. He believes that the ruler of Thebes the tombs of ancient Egypt's exactly together in the valley they were dug.
For the continuation of the expedition, he went to "sponsor" Lord Carnarvon. Aristocrats who loved antique and antique mengultimatum Howard Carter that he could no longer support the expedition. However, H Carter convinced Carnarvon that he only needed one more chance.

Excavation was continued for two days and clear the stone staircase leads to a closed door. Lord Carnarvon was ditelegram told that the door of the tomb of Tutankhamen was discovered.
After Carnarvon arrived on the scene, two days later the stone door to the tomb was opened successfully. Inside the hall there is a jumble of rocks decorated with Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs on the wall next to the door.
Carter tried to open the door by chiseling stone crevice. After shifting some rocks, he made a small hole. Of the gap he put the candle to peer into the dark room behind the door.
What he saw amazed him still for a moment. He has found the tomb he is looking for twenty years, the tomb of Pharaoh Tutankhamen.
Pharaoh Tutankhamen or Tutankhamun was still so young. He was the Pharaoh of the 12th dynasty of Egypt to-18. Ruled from 1334 - 1323 BC.
