It looks like that famous Egyptian Pharaoh King Tutankhamun really drew the short straw in life’s lottery.  According to an AP report on his DNA test results, King Tut:

was a frail boy who suffered from a cleft palate and club foot. He died of complications from a broken leg exacerbated by malaria and his parents were most likely brother and sister.

Well, at least he got to be King.
