Tutankhamun

Tutankhamun, Egyptological pronunciation Tutankhamen, was an ancient Egyptian pharaoh, the last of his royal family to rule during the end of the 18th dynasty during the New Kingdom of Egyptian history. His father was the pharaoh Akhenaten, believed to be the mummy found in the tomb KV55, his mother is his father's sister, identified through DNA testing as an unknown mummy referred to as. Tutankhamun took the throne at eight or nine years of age under the unprecedented viziership of his eventual successor, Ay, to whom he may have been related, he married his half sister Ankhesenamun. During their marriage they lost two daughters, one at 5–6 months of pregnancy and the other shortly after birth at full-term, his names. There are Egyptologists. Tutankhamun restored the Ancient Egyptian religion after its dissolution by his father and endowed the priestly orders of two important cults and began restoring old monuments damaged during the previous Amarna period, he moved his father's remains to the Valley of the Kings as well as moving the capitol from Akhetaten to Thebes.

Tutankhamun was physically disabled with a deformity of his left foot along with bone necrosis that required the use of a cane, several of which where found in his tomb as well as body armor and bows, having been trained in archery. He had contracted several strains of malaria; the 1922 discovery by Howard Carter of Tutankhamun's nearly intact tomb, in excavations funded by Lord Carnarvon, received worldwide press coverage. With over 5,000 artifacts, it sparked a renewed public interest in ancient Egypt, for which Tutankhamun's mask, now in the Egyptian Museum, remains a popular symbol; the deaths of a few involved in the discovery of Tutankhamun's mummy have been popularly attributed to the curse of the pharaohs. He has, since the discovery of his intact tomb, been referred to colloquially as "King Tut"; some of his treasure has traveled worldwide with unprecedented response. The Egyptian Supreme Council of Antiquities allowed tours beginning in 1962 with the exhibit at the Louvre in Paris, followed by the Kyoto Municipal Museum of Art in Tokyo, Japan.

The exhibits drew in millions of visitors. The 1972 - 1979 exhibit was shown in United States, Soviet Union, France and West Germany. There were no international exhibitions again until 2005 - 2011; this exhibit featured Tutankhamun's predecessors from the 18th dynasty, including Hatshepsut and Akhenaten, but did not include the golden death mask. The treasures 2019-2022 tour began in Los Angeles and will end in 2022 at the new Grand Egyptian Museum in Cairo, for the first time, will be displaying the full Tutankhamun collection, gathered from all of Egypt's museums and storerooms. Tutankhamun was the son of Akhenaten, believed to be the mummy found in tomb KV55, his mother is one of Akhenaten's sisters. At birth he was named a name reflecting the Atenist beliefs of his father, his wet nurse was a woman called Maia, known from her tomb at Saqqara. While some suggestions have been made that Tutankhamun's mother was Meketaten, based on a relief from the Royal Tomb at Amarna, given that she was about 10 years old at the time of her death, this has been deemed unlikely.

Another interpretation of the relief names Nefertiti as his mother. In 2008 genetic analysis was carried out on the mummified remains of Tutankhamun and others thought or known to be New Kingdom royalty by a team from University of Cairo; the results indicated that his father was the KV55 mummy, identified as Akhenaten, that his mother was the KV35 Younger Lady, found to be a full sister of her husband. This means that the KV35 Younger Lady cannot be identified as Nefertiti as she was not known to be a sister of Akhenaten; the team reported it was over 99.99 percent certain that Amenhotep III was the father of the individual in KV55, in turn the father of Tutankhamun. The validity and reliability of the genetic data from mummified remains has been questioned due to possible degradation due to decay. Researchers such as Marc Gabolde and Aidan Dodson claim that Nefertiti was indeed Tutankhamun's mother. In this interpretation of the DNA results the genetic closeness is not due to a brother-sister pairing but the result of three generations of first cousin marriage, making Nefertiti a first cousin of Akhenaten.

When Tutankhamun became king, he married his half-sister, who changed her name to Ankhesenamun. They had two daughters. While only an incomplete genetic profile was obtained from the two mummified foetuses, it was enough to confirm that Tutankhamun was their father. Only partial data for the two female mummies from KV21 has been obtained so far. KV21A has been suggested as the mother of the foetuses but the data is not statistically significant enough to allow her to be securely identified as Ankhesenamun. Computed tomography studies published in 2011 revealed that one daughter was born prematurely at 5–6 months of pregnancy and the other at full-term, 9 months; the daughter born at 9 months gestation had spina bifida and Sprengel's deformity. Tutankhamun's death marked the end of the royal line of the 18th dynasty. Tutankhamun was between eight and nine years

Lohja (region)

Lohja is a northern Albanian region whose territory is synonymous with a minor historic Albanian tribe of the same name. The area of Lohja is part of the wider Malësia region, known as Malësia of Shkodra. Lohja is used for people claiming ancestry from it; the term Lohja occurs, according to Edith Durham, in a document in 1349 as Loho. Geographically, Lohja is a small region situated in the Malësia e Madhe District, near Dedaj, north of Koplik, it borders on the traditional tribal regions of Kastrati to the west and north, on Reç and Rjolli to the south. Many families from Lohja are located in the town of Koplik and they are referred as autochtones though they have settled around 200 years than the founders; the Lohja tribe had a population of some 2,500 in the last years of the 19th century

Ladysmith, British Columbia

Ladysmith Oyster Harbour, is a town located on the 49th parallel north on the east coast of Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. The local economy is based on forestry and agriculture. A green hill location adjacent to a sheltered harbour forms the natural geography of the community; as of 2016, the population was 8,537. The area of the town was 11.99 square kilometres. Total private dwellings were 3,754. Population density was 711.9 people per square kilometre. James Dunsmuir founded Ladysmith about 1898, a year after he built shipping wharves for loading coal at Oyster Harbour from the mine at Extension, nearer Nanaimo. Dunsmuir, owner of coal mines in the Nanaimo area, needed a location to house the families of his miners, he chose to build the community at what was known as Oyster Harbour, some 20 miles south of his Extension mines. Many buildings were moved from Extension and Wellington by oxen. In 1900, Dunsmuir renamed the town in honour of the British lifting the siege of Ladysmith in South Africa during the Second Boer War.

The Town of Ladysmith was incorporated June 3, 1904. Dunsmuir thought. In addition to commemorating the end of the war by naming his town after Ladysmith, Dunsmuir chose to name the streets of the community after British military personnel including: Field Marshall Lord Roberts, General John French, General Redvers Buller, General Sir Charles Warren, General Sir George White, Horatio Herbert Kitchener, Lieutenant-General Sir William Forbes Gatacre, Robert Stephenson Smyth Baden-Powell, Major General Lord Methuen, Sir William Penn Symonds; the local high school yearbook was at one time called Spion Kop, in commemoration of the Battle of Spion Kop, a famous engagement in January 1900 in which the Boers defeated British troops during the Second Boer War. Ladysmith experienced significant unrest and violence during the Vancouver Island coal miners' strike of 1912–1914; the miners were striking because of a variety of long-standing safety concerns. During the strike, militia were dispatched to protect property.

The Seaforth Highlanders first saw active service in the summer of 1912 when rallies by striking coal miners in the area around Nanaimo led to rioting. A company from the Seaforths was sent to maintain the peace. Peace was restored and maintained until the unit was called back to mobilize for war in August 1914. In 2017, Ladysmith's historic First Avenue was named the best street in Canada by the Canadian Institute of Planners; the Ladysmith-Chemainus Chronicle, a weekly community paper on Vancouver Island with a circulation of 1,898, has been printed locally and was founded in 1908. It is circulated in central Vancouver Island, it is archived online in the Google news archive. Ladysmith Secondary School is the only secondary school in Ladysmith; the area has three elementary schools: Ladysmith Primary School, Ladysmith Intermediate School, École North Oyster Elementary. École North Oyster Elementary is a dual-track school, having both French immersion and English programs. Pamela Anderson, a Canadian-American actress and animal rights activist, was born and lived in Ladysmith until the age of 12.
