Spells and curses in ancient Egypt

Until now, the myths about Egyptian spells are still largely shrouded in mystery.

  Egypt is famous for being the most prosperous ancient civilization in the world. In all fields: from science to art, the people on the banks of the Nile River excel and achieve many outstanding achievements.  In particular, the inhabitants of ancient Egypt were one of the earliest people to use charms and believe in magic. Until now, the myths about Egyptian spells are still largely shrouded in mystery.


Love spells in the forbidden palace Let’s start the story with the love spell in the forbidden palace of the Pharaohs. In ancient times, in the Egyptian dynasties, typically the time of Akhate, people always believed that when a man was infatuated with a woman, it was a sign that the man had mistakenly eaten the “enchantment medicine”. amnesia”.  Queen Nefertiti – wife of the great pharaoh Akhnate is the most powerful woman in history. She was the first Egyptian woman to hold supreme power, create a new god-worshiping religion, and build a second capital of the Egyptian empire. It is said that her secret weapon is the “love spell”.


History records that Nefertiti was the most beautiful woman in Egypt. Her beauty has a captivating charm, not only for humans but also for the Sun God Aten. In the palace, to compete for the throne and be favored by the Pharaoh, she cast a love spell on her husband.


Those amulets were the special spices she anointed on her body, the incantations and the help of skilled monks. As a result, Nefertiti achieved almost everything: love, pampering, ultimate power.  There’s only one thing her love spell doesn’t work for: giving birth. The six children Nefertiti gave birth to Pharaoh Akhenaten were all daughters, which was also the key to the queen’s tragic fate at the end of her life. Talismans and curses of the century The world of Egyptian spells is also associated with curses in the Pharaoh’s tomb – the pyramid. They were created by the priests to protect the eternal rest of the Pharaohs as well as preserve the wealth buried with them.  In most of the tombs in the Imperial Valley, people can find hieroglyphic inscriptions with the content: ” Whoever comes to disturb the peace of the Pharaoh, the door of death will fall on that person’s head.” ”.   bua-chu-va-loi-nguyen-thoi-ai-cap-co-dai

Strangely enough, there are quite a few of those spells that work. Scientific archaeological and tomb searches to find a new Pharaoh’s tomb are always accompanied by disappearances, mysterious deaths or strange diseases…  bua-chu-va-loi-nguyen-thoi-ai-cap-co-dai

The story of the spell of the young king Tutankhamun (died in 1,300 BC) is a very clear proof. The excavation of this king’s tomb is considered one of the valuable archaeological achievements of the early twentieth century.  However, as soon as Viscount Kanaban – the person who invested capital in the excavation – died of a strange illness, questions were raised. He died from an insect sting when entering the crypt.


In particular, the wound on his face coincided exactly with the wound on the young king’s face. Not only that, continuously after that, members of the archaeological team also encountered many strange and unfavorable things. By the 80s, the number of deaths from Tutankhamun’s spell had reached more than 50.  A common characteristic of those who died due to Tutankhamun’s spell is that many of them thought before leaving: ” I heard his breathing, I have to go with him.” bua-chu-va-loi-nguyen-thoi-ai-cap-co-dai

Many people believed that the discoveries of the tombs made the gods angry and rained down on the blasphemers. But there are also many other people who believe in scientific hypotheses and do not consider them curses or spells.  They believe that the pyramid explorers were infected with extremely toxic bacteria from the food and clothes that the Pharaoh buried.  However, one thing they cannot explain is what factor helps bacteria survive for so long, about more than 4,000 years in the desert.  So far, those are just stories, clues and hypotheses. Hopefully one day soon, that curtain will be fully lifted…
