    I also heard that story. It was quite interesting, far more so than the so called Tut's Curse, which had only to do with Lord Kanargen (sp)'s weakness and exposure to toxic molds.

    Yes, there's many different sources that have him saying different things. Once says "If you open my tomb, a fate worse than myself will fall upon you". The message seems pretty clear though, despite the change in wording as you said.

    Even if it was mere coincidence that hitler attacked a few months after it was opened, it's very interesting to consider in the least. Especially when you take into account how many soviets would die in the war.

    Soviets are taking a part in WWII already from september of 1939 (assault on Poland, occupation of Baltic states and Besarabia, assault on Finland) and the tomb is only opened in 1941.:)))

    caeser44,

    WWII started on 1th september 1939 and all plans "Gelb", "Barbarossa" etc. are just acts of war that is already going. Soviets are in this war from same September 1939.

    Actually Britain, France etc. didn't declare war until the 3rd of September. The 1st was Hitler's invasion of Poland.
