Top 15 Scary Real Curses That Are DEADLY

15) The Cursed Tomb
Mummies and curses just seem to go hand-in-hand, so it should come as no surprise that our
first terrifying deadly curse comes from the Cursed Tomb of Timur. As the story goes, in 1396, Timur became the
Great Khan and decided it was best to strike out on a bloody campaign to rival his late
relative Genghis Khan, his great grandfather by blood. And so, he tore through Persia to southern
Russia, leaving no man standing. He destroyed whole cities and massacred most
of the citizens therein, as evidenced in the sacking of Herat, the capital of the Kartid
dynasty. In Isfizar, Timur cemented prisoners into
the city walls, alive. And in Isfahan, the rebels killed Timur’s
tax collectors and some of his soldiers, so he revenged them by massacring around 100,000-200,000
of the city’s citizens, placing their heads into 28 towers. This was to create terror and combat resistance
as he continued to conquer the world. As he prepared to battle Dehli, Timur grew
even more blood-thirsty. He killed 100,000 captives and, once the city
had fallen and the remaining citizens attempted to form an uprising, he ordered a horrific
massacre. It is said that the city reeked of the citizens’
decomposing bodies, which were left for the birds, while their heads were piled into structures. His terror continued as he invaded Baghdad
in 1401. There, he ordered each soldier to bring him
two severed heads at the minimum. Once they’d slaughtered everyone, there
were no more men to kill, so some soldiers killed prisoners they’d captured earlier,
while others returned with their own wives’ heads. His legacy left a 70,000-strong pyramid of
human skulls in northern India, along with up to 17 million dead, according to some estimates. Needless to say, Timur was a bit of a nasty
fellow. Sadistic. Egotistical. A smart strategist, but legitimately evil. So when he passed away in 1405, it’s none
too shocking that a curse was laid over his tomb in the Gur-e Amir complex of Samarkand,
Uzbekistan. Kabek Khan’s jade throne served as a cover
for Timur’s tomb. On it, inscribed in Arabic text, read the
curse: “When I arise from the grave, the world will tremble.” And it did tremble in 1941, when Soviet archeologist,
Mikhail Mikhaylovich Gerasimov, was sent by Stalin to excavate the tomb. The Uzbek elders revealed a book to Kaumov,
which stated that the tomb of Timur should never be opened, “otherwise a war could
be provoked.” Kaumov didn’t listen to this warning and
removed Timur’s skull on June 21st. The very next day, Russia went to war with
the Nazis. Hitler launched an attack, called Operation
Barbarossa, which “made the world tremble,” indeed. It was the most expansive and vicious invasion
of the Second World War. Millions of Soviet civilians and soldiers
were lost to the invasion. When, finally, the Soviets gave way to their
superstitions on December 20th, 1942, and returned Timur’s remains to his tomb, adhering
to Islamic burial rights, the Nazis’ Operation, Winter Storm, failed miserably in Stalingrad. Terrifying deadly curse…or coincidence? You decide…or venture into the Mongol’s
tomb, and let Timur’s skull decide for you. 14) Tomb of Hermeru
While no fatalities have been ascribed to the Tomb of Hermeru, there is most certainly
a curse detailed on the High Priest’s tomb. With two false doors, the tomb is terrifying,
in and of itself, but its ancient curse is even creepier. It states: “I shall seize his neck like
that of a goose.” If you don’t mind having your neck rung
like a goose, visit the tomb and descend the stairway that leads into an open court with
an underground chapel. Although the tomb wasn’t completed, with
its paintings and décor left unfinished, the costly entrance demonstrates how much
the High Priest meant to his pharaoh, fitted with limestone and, apparently, a terrifying
deadly curse. 13) The Cursed Iceman Cometh
Throwback to 1991. “The Iceman” – aka Oetzi – was uncovered
in the stretch of the Alps range, between Italy and Austria. Little did those who excavated Oetzi know,
the old bat was cursed. The deadly curse killed seven people linked
to his excavation over the next thirteen years. While three of the deaths were natural, the
remaining four were crazy violent, so much so that conspiracy theorists have suggested
that the Iceman cursed those who dug up his old weathered remains from their 5,300-year-old
haunting ground, only to pick him apart for their own amusement. Forensic pathologist, Rainer Henn, was the
curse’s first victim. After using his bare hands to place the Iceman
in a body bag, he headed to a 1992 world conference to discuss the group’s findings. On the way, he died in a car crash. The curse’s second victim, Kurt Fritz, was
the mountaineer who guided Henn to the Iceman. He swept away the ice and snow from the dead
man’s face. He was killed in an avalanche, the only one
of his party to have met death that day. The third victim was behind the camera the
day they uncovered the Iceman. A brain tumor killed him. Still don’t believe in the curse? Well, maybe these next three will turn skeptics
into believers. The man who found the Iceman, Helmut Simon,
was missing for more than a week in 2004. When he was found, it was by a rescue team. Simon laid face-down in a creek after falling
300 feet from a cliff to his death. The curse seemed to stalk even Simon’s rescue
team, as the team-lead, Dieter Warnecke, died from a heart attack only an hour after Simon’s
funeral. Konrad Spindler, archeologist and lead expert
on the Iceman excavation, said of the purported curse, “I think it’s a load of rubbish. It is all a media hype. The next thing you will be saying I will be
next.” And he was next. He passed away of complications from a chronic
pre-existing condition of ALS. Lastly, the seventh victim of the curse was
Tom Loy, a scientist who found human blood on the Iceman’s weapons and clothing. In 2005, he passed away from a hereditary
blood disease, a condition that was diagnosed the very year he began working on the Iceman. While many of these deaths are obviously natural,
the curse still stands. In fact, the Iceman, himself, met with an
untimely and violent death. He was killed by an arrow and had his skull
bashed in. He was a victim too, but the curse that hung
over his mummified body for centuries has created many more in his wake. 12) The Curse of Superman
The man of steel. Superhuman strength. Super speed. Super hearing. X-ray and heat vision. Oh, yeah, and the power of flight. This kryptonite-dodging superhero may seem
like the toughest around. So it may come as a surprise that this superhero
is super-cursed. Or at least the stars who’ve played him
are. The curse is said to have sprung from the
artist, Joe Shuster, and the hero’s creator, Jerry Siegel, who invented the comic book
character for DC Comics. DC held all the rights for the superhero and
paid Shuster and Siegel little for him. In failing to receive just compensation for
their creation, the two are said to have possibly placed the curse on the character, themselves. Those who have been part of the Superman series
have been on the receiving end of some pretty terrifying misfortunes. Particularly, the leads in the TV series and
the first superman movies, George Reeves and Christopher Reeve, respectively. From 1952-1958, George Reeves starred in Adventures
of Superman and, in 1959, at age 45, he committed suicide by shooting himself (although the
circumstances have been disputed). Christopher Reeve starred in the films from
1978-1987. In 1995, he fell from his horse and became
tragically paralyzed. He only lived nine years longer, dying from
a heart attack at age 52. Some even believe that JFK fell victim to
this deadly curse. His staff had approved a Superman story to
be released by DC Comics in April of 1964. In the episode, the hero highlights the physical
fitness initiatives put forward by the president. This was shortly before the assassination
of JFK. A number of actors have refused to play the
Superman role, because of this terrifying deadly curse. They don’t want to be numbered amongst its
subsequent victims. 11) The Kennedy Curse
Or maybe Kennedy had his own curse to contend with…he didn’t have to go looking for
Superman. The Kennedy Curse has killed off many Kennedys
over the years, reaching way back to 1944. Most notably, JFK in 1963 and Bobby Kennedy,
his brother, in 1968. Both assassinations are riddled with conspiracy
theories, one of which is that they fell prey to the Kennedy Curse. But these two primary figures weren’t the
only Kennedys to have suffered from the curse. In 1944, Joseph P. Kennedy was killed in a
plane explosion in England, during World War II, while Kathleen Kennedy was also killed
in the war in Belgium by sniper fire. In 1963, Jackie O lost her son, Patrick Bouvier
Kennedy, due to a lung ailment after a premature birth. Ted Kennedy, another of the Kennedy brothers,
resisted the curse’s fatal grip not once, but twice. In 1964, he survived a plane crash that killed
the pilot and one of his aides. He suffered a punctured lung, internal bleeding,
a broken back, and fractured ribs, but managed to keep his life. In the second incident, he drove off a bridge
in Chappaquiddick in 1969, killing his passenger Mary Jo Kopechne. He managed to survive, provoking even further
conspiracy surrounding the Kennedy family. Most recently, in 1999, John F. Kennedy, Junior,
was killed in a plane crash over the Atlantic Ocean, along with his wife and her sister. While these terrifying deaths may suggest
a curse, the Kennedy Curse isn’t always deadly. It wreaks havoc in other ways, touching many
in the family through various sinister means. 10) The Cursed Telephone Number
How can a telephone number be terrifying or deadly? Its owner being spammed to death? A call coming “from inside the house”? Well, sure, why not? But this particular cursed phone number has
a totally different attack mechanism. In the turn of the millennium, the number
0888-888-888 was first issued in Bulgaria by a Bulgarian mobile phone company, called
Mobiltel. It’s been issued several times since, due
to every single one of its owners meeting an untimely death. Three lives, in total, have been ended seemingly
as a result of the cursed telephone number. Originally, the CEO of Mobiltel, himself,
owned the number. Vladimir Grashnov died of cancer in 2001. That’s when things got even weirder. Konstantin Dimitrov was the number’s next
recipient. Being a mafia boss, it’s not a huge surprise
that he was blown away by the curse. In 2003, he was fatally shot while eating
out with a model. The next fateful death came at the tail end
of more bullets. This victim was also a crooked character,
allegedly a corrupt businessman, heading up a drug empire. Konstantin Dishliev was passing by an Indian
restaurant in Sofia in 2005, when he was fatally shot. Coincidence? Or the bad luck of a cursed phone number? In both Konstantin cases, the likely attackers
were Russian operatives who were in the business of taking out their competition. However, the three deaths – happening all
on odd years, two years apart – while all three men carried mobile phones with the same
creepy number have led many to question whether the digits, ultimately, are at fault. Mobiltel has since taken the number out of
circulation. A Mobiltel rep was asked about the cursed
telephone number and replied, “We have no comment to make. We won’t discuss individual numbers.” Their suspension of the number lead some to
believe that perhaps they know more than they’re letting on… 9) The Björketorp (Bee-york-kuh-torp) Runestone
The great mystery of Sweden is an ancient rune. What is a rune? According to your old battered dictionary,
it’s “any of the characters of certain ancient alphabets, as of a script used for
writing the Germanic languages, especially of Scandinavia and Britain.” It can also be defined as “an aphorism,
poem, or saying with mystical meaning or for use in casting a spell,” the last of which
seems to describe the Björketorp Runestone. This 14-foot monolith can be found in Blekinge,
Sweden. Two other blank menhirs are placed next to
the rune, forming a stone circle. The Proto-Norse language casts the curse in
a warning on its face, which reads, “I, master of the runes, conceal here runes of
power. Incessantly (plagued by) maleficence, (doomed
to) insidious death (is) he who breaks this (monument).” In layman’s terms, this means the man that
breaks this ruin will shortly meet his death. The opposite side of the stone indicates the
“Prediction of Perdition” or “Prophecy of Destruction.” This curse comes from the 6th or 7th century
and its symbols are similar to the Elder Futhark Runes, which are the most ancient form of
the runic alphabet. 2nd-8th century Germanic tribes used this
alphabet, which contained 24 runes. The Björketorp Runestone’s purpose has
been debated. Some scholars believe it is a marker of some
kind. Others think that it served as a shrine to
Odin, the Norse god. Still others suggest that it may mark a border
between the Danes and the Swedes. But the most popular theory is that the runestone
is a burial marker – either a memorial or marking a true gravesite. This may justify warning against the destruction
of the stone. However, no human remains were ever uncovered
from a 1914 excavation of the area. Setting the stone’s purpose aside, the curse
of the runestone is local legend, starting with the terrifying death of a local man. He attempted to remove the stone from the
land by piling wood around it, in order to heat it enough to crack the stone by pouring
cold water on it. The day was calm, still, not a breath of wind. But as the legend goes, once the man started
the fire, a huge wind roared, blowing the flames toward the man. The fire around the Björketorp Runestone
died, as did the man, once his hair was set on fire. The unfortunate victim of this curse died
a painful death. Fortunately, no one has attempted to remove
the stone since, so there have been no additional victims of this curse. The rune remains standing to this day, a threat
to all who suggest its removal or destruction. 8) The Omen
The Omen was the brainchild of Robert Munger, who warned the film’s producer, Harvey Bernhard
that: “The devil’s greatest single weapon is to be invisible, and you’re going to
take off his cloak of invisibility to millions of people.” This statement conceived a curse the likes
of which no horror film has ever seen. The film’s cast and crew were seemingly
stalked by Satan, even before production began. One of the first victims of the curse was
Gregory Peck, the film’s star. Tragedy stuck when his son killed himself
two months prior to filming. But it didn’t end there; Satan really didn’t
want Peck in the film, as he tried to scare the actor to death on his transatlantic flight
to start filming. His plane was struck by lightning, setting
the engine on fire and nearly crash-landing the aircraft into the sea. A producer for the film, Mace Neufeld, crossed
the Atlantic a few days later, and his flight was also struck by lightning. He, too, lived…but yikes! During production, Satan continued in his
meddling. Among the first shots of the film was an aerial
view of London. A plane was rented for the shot, but in the
end, the aircraft was switched by the rental company, in order for the original plane to
be used to transport some Japanese businessmen. The Devil, himself, couldn’t have predicted
this switch, so the businessmen’s plane came crashing down, killing every single one
of the innocent curse-victims instantly. Onward, the curse continued, as a stuntman
was brutally attacked by trained Rottweilers in one of the film’s most iconic scenes. The trainer attempted to call the pack off,
but they continued to bite through the stuntman’s thick padding and nearly killed him. Yet another animal attack killed Sidney Bamford,
a tiger wrangler, on set. Bamford hadn’t secured the tigers properly,
and one of the wild beasts launched at him, biting his face off. Needless to say, the curse was brutal and
violent. It became even more violent when it failed
to kill the film producer, Neufeld, in his transatlantic flight. During filming, he was staying at The Hilton
in London when the hotel exploded. However, Satan had failed, yet again, to take
Neufeld’s life, and so, with help from the IRA, he blew up a London restaurant a few
days later, as Neufeld was en route to it. Thwarted, again, by Hollywood producer! But perhaps the most ominous of the curse’s
attacks occurred after the film was released on 6/6/76. John Richardson, the film’s special effects
consultant, was the mastermind behind The Omen’s bloody death scenes. In the film, one of the most gruesome scenes
involved a plate of glass beheading Keith Jennings, a photographer. After the film was released, Richardson went
to film A Bridge Too Far in Holland. On Friday the 13th, a week after The Omen
had been released, Richardson and Liz Moore, his assistant, were the victims of a head-on
collision. Moore was decapitated by a wheel from the
other vehicle, mirroring the Keith Jennings death scene. Richardson awoke from the tragic crash to
find the kilometer marker “Ommen 66,6.” The accident occurred at the 66,6 kilometer
mark near Ommen, Netherlands. Could this curse get any more terrifying? 7) The Cursed Musicians
Ever heard of the “27 Club”? Okay, well you’re about to. The Club refers to a league of musicians who
have been cursed by the number 27…that is, they’ve all met their untimely deaths at
this ripe young age. Who are the unwilling members of this club? Kurt Cobain, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Jimi
Hendrix, and Brian Jones, just to name a few. These musicians were generational voices,
cultural icons and defined what it means to be a rock star. They were also drug addicts, each dying from
drug-related deaths at the age of 27. Kurt Cobain had attempted suicide prior to
his death at 27. He’d overdosed in Rome in 1994. His wife, Courtney Love, found him unconscious,
with a toxic mix of Rohypnol and champagne in his belly. He was revived at a local hospital and returned
to Seattle. After this incident and a second one, where
Cobain had locked himself in a room with a gun, Love arranged an intervention with those
Cobain loved, in order to address his drug use. Cobain eventually agreed to enter into a detox
program, but in short time, he climbed over a six-foot fence to escape the rehab facility. He flew back to Seattle where, on April 8th,
his body was found by an electrician. Cobain had shot himself in the face. He left a note, addressing his imaginary friend,
“Boddah,” declaring that he’d “not felt the excitement of listening to as well
as creating music, along with really writing… for too many years now.” His body was filled with diazepam and heroin
and had been there for days. The prominent list of Club members continues,
with Joplin overdosing on heroin, Morrison likely overdosing as well and found dead in
the bathtub, Hendrix being asphyxiated by his own vomit, and Jones drowning in a pool. But the list of curse victims doesn’t end
there. The Club has initiated 41 members, with its
first victim dating back to 1892, when Alexandre Levy, famed Brazilian musician, died mysteriously
at the age of 27. The cause of death was undisclosed, but medical
records showed he had no prior illness. Further victims of the curse include ragtime
musician, Louis Chauvin, who died of Neurosyphillitic sclerosis; the inventor of the blues, Robert
Johnson, who is said to have sold his soul to the Devil and, in return, was taken prematurely
at 27; and, more recently, Amy Winehouse, who died of alcohol poisoning after spending
the night alone, allegedly watching YouTube videos of herself. The latest member to join the club is Zambian
musician, Lily Tembo. She passed away in September, 2009, from gastritis
and anaemia. So, whether the curse takes its victims through
a drug overdose, a soul sold to the Devil, or your everyday “natural” causes, the
27 Club has claimed the lives of many…and may claim many more to come. Watch your backs, musical prodigies! 6) The Curse of Tutankhamen
Our dear old Egyptian friend, Tutankhamen, had a curse or two to deliver his excavators. When his final resting place was opened in
1922 by Henry Carter, the archeologist found the ancient tomb nearly intact, which seemed
to be a miracle to him and Lord Carnarvon, the search’s financial backer…that is,
until the curse hit home. Lord Carnarvon was the curse’s first victim. A few months after the tomb had been opened,
he was taken to Cairo after suddenly falling ill. Several days later, he died of an unknown
cause at the age of 57. His medical records suggest that a festering
infection from an insect bite may be the cause of death. At his time of death, legend says that a power
outage struck all of Cairo into darkness for a short while. Even more terrifying, thousands of miles away
on Carnarvon’s estate in England, his dog is said to have howled in agony and then dropped
dead simultaneously, as reported by Carnarvon’s son. To add to the curse’s legitimacy, when Tutankhamen’s
mummy was unwrapped in 1925, his remains are said to have held evidence of the curse. A wound on the ancient emperor’s left cheek
was strategically positioned in the same spot as Carnarvon’s insect bite. The curse continued to wreak havoc on those
connected with the tomb’s discovery. Seven years after its excavation, eleven people
had been killed prematurely by unnatural causes. The curse continued to follow the Carnarvon
family and his relations, killing off his personal secretary, Richard Bethell, Bethell’s
father, and two of Carnarvon’s relatives. Bethell is said to have been in perfect health
and is believed to have been smothered to death as he slept. Lord Westbury, Bethell’s father, committed
suicide by jumping off a building. His suicide note read: “I really cannot
stand any more horrors and hardly see what good I am going to do here, so I am making
my exit.” The curse is said to have taken the lives
of more than twenty others who are somehow linked to the tomb’s excavation. Also making their exits were Edgar Steele,
the handler of the tomb’s artifacts at the British Museum, and Sir Ernest Wallis Budge,
who was also responsible for displaying the artifacts at the museum’s Department of
Egyptian and Assyrian Antiquities. Nothing like an Egyptian curse to take down
dozens of innocents. 5) The Hope Diamond
Dating back to 1642, the Hope Diamond has spelt out misfortune for many of its owners. The 25.60 millimeter by 21.78 millimeter by
12.00 millimeter diamond is a whopping 45.52 carats. Remarkable for its astounding beauty, clarity,
color and, of course, its size, perhaps its cursed history claims the title as its most
wondrous detail. The blue faceted ovoid diamond, set in a 16-white
diamond pendent, has an infamous past. Legend has it that a stealthy thief, named
Tavernier, stole the prominent jewel from its Indian origin. The diamond was said to be placed in the eye
or on the forehead of a Hindu statue of the goddess, Sita. After Tavernier had sold the diamond, he traveled
to Russia (presumably to steal more cursed jewels), where he was torn to shreds by wild
dogs. A terrifyingly deadly way to go. The master jewel was later passed to King
Louis XVI, who also met with a horrifically violent death, as he was beheaded alongside
his wife, Queen Marie Antoinette, for high treason and crimes against the State. A number of other deaths have been associated
with the diamond, including that of a Dutch jeweler who was tasked with recutting the
diamond. The jeweler, Wilhelm Fals, was his son’s
victim in a murder-suicide. Greek merchant, Simon Maoncharides, was also
a previous owner of the Hope Diamond. With his wife and child in the car, he drove
over the cliff and killed them all. These are just a handful of unfortunates who
have been touched by death over the years due to this wretched curse. You can visit the Smithsonian Institute and
take a gander at the inexplicable jewel…that is, unless you care to live another day. 4) Tecumseh: The Curse of the Dead Presidents
The Tecumseh curse has led to the demise of some of the most powerful men on earth: that
is, US Presidents, elected in a decade-year. Nearly every president that has been put into
the Oval Office on a year ending in zero has had an untimely death…and, often, a gruesome
one. The Tecumseh’s curse is said to have originated
from President Harrison’s electoral run. Harrison was victorious at the 1811 Battle
of Tippecanoe, winning over the Native American leader, Tecumseh, who allegedly delivered
this curse in response. Running on the slogan, “Tippecanoe and Tyler
Too,” Harrison was elected in the year 1840 and served as president for a grand total
of one month, after which he died from a cold. He’d given a speech in the rain, leading
to a fatal infection. The assassinations of Lincoln, Garfield, McKinley,
and Kennedy are all associated with this curse. Lincoln was elected in 1860, Garfield was
elected in 1880, McKinley was elected in 1900, and Kennedy was elected in 1960. Additionally, Presidents Warren Harding, elected
in 1920, and FDR, elected in 1940, both died in office, with Harding suffering a stroke
and FDR, a brain hemorrhage. The curse was broken by Reagan and George
W. Bush, although Reagan just narrowly missed its vengeance, as he, quite literally, dodged
a bullet in a 1981 assassination attempt. 3) The “Touch of Death”
Bruce and Brandon Lee, famed martial artists and film stars, both passed away unexpectedly
from the purported curse of the “Dim Mak,” also known as “The Touch of Death.” In martial arts, the “Dim Mak” relates
to a sequence of touching specific body parts, which is said to result in death. According to some, Bruce Lee died from his
1973 cerebral edema after falling victim to the so-called “Touch of Death.” Even more eerily, his son, Brandon Lee, died
on the set of The Crow in 1993. He was accidentally shot to death by what
was supposed to be a “dummy” cartridge from a prop gun. Unfortunately, the prop team had created their
own dummy cartridges by pulling the bullets from live rounds, but one was not sorted properly,
resulting in a fatal shot to Lee’s abdomen. 2) The Curse of the “Little Bastard”
James Dean infamously died in his Porsche Spyder, which he’d nicknamed the “Little
Bastard.” On September 30th, 1955, at 5:45 p.m., the
moviestar and icon became the first victim of the car’s curse, after suffering a broken
neck in a head-on collision. The other car’s driver, Donald Durnupseed,
received minor injuries, while Dean’s passenger, Rolf Wutherich, was thrown from the vehicle,
but lived. Dean was not so lucky, having been pinned
inside the Porsche. This tragic event would have been deemed just
that had the Porsche not become involved in several additional seemingly cursed deaths
that occurred in the wreck’s aftermath. George Barris, a master car customizer, purchased
the wrecked Porsche for $2,500. When it was being unloaded into Barris’
garage, the wreck fell on one of the mechanics and broke both of his legs. While this incident, in itself, wasn’t deadly,
Barris felt it was ominous and so he followed the curse to parts sold from the vehicle. In October of 1956, two cars which were fitted
with parts from the “Little Bastard” were racing at Pomona Fair Grounds. The curse came after the two physicians who
raced these cars, William Eschrid and Troy McHenry. Echrid’s car was flipped during the race
when it locked up spontaneously as he turned a corner. He survived, though he suffered serious injuries. McHenry was not so fortunate. The engine of the “Little Bastard” had
been installed in his race car, and McHenry somehow lost control of the vehicle, hitting
a tree, and killing him. Further accidents related to the Porsche were
said to have occurred until it disappeared in 1960. To this day, no one knows where the cursed
Bastard’s remains have been laid to rest. 1. The Cursed Wedding
If you’re a fan of Game of Thrones, you might consider cursed weddings to be the norm. But as bloody as Thrones’ weddings can get,
the real-life wedding of Maria Vittoria dal Pozzo, the 6th Princess della Cisterna may
just rival those fictional Red Weddings. King Victor Emmanuel II of Italy was against
his son’s engagement from the start. When Prince Amedeo of Savoy proposed to Maria,
he was met with outright opposition from his father, who believed the “Duchess consort”
was beneath him, because she wasn’t of royal birth. The headstrong Prince Amedeo went against
his father’s wishes and married Maria anyway on May 30, 1867. The wedding day, however, did not go according
to plan. To begin with, the woman who had been tasked
with laying out Maria’s wedding dress decided to hang herself in it instead. Thus, the princess had to rush to find another
gown. Once the bridal party had taken care of that
mishap, they set out for the church. On the way, the bridal procession, led by
the colonel, was stalled as he dropped dead from sunstroke, falling off his horse. At the palace gates, another death delayed
them: the gatekeeper was found in a pool of blood. The curse continued at the wedding feast,
when the Prince’s best man promptly shot himself in the head in lieu of a toast. The couple decided to flee the curse, heading
to a train station in order to leave town but were, again, stalled by an internal brain
hemorrhage that killed their marriage contractor. Shortly thereafter, the stationmaster was
stampeded to death after being pulled under the bridal carriage. Talk about carnage: that’s six dead, and
counting! King Victor, perhaps superstitious after all
this death, decided to call the wedding party back to the safety of the palace. Unfortunately, another of the wedding party,
the Count of Castiglione, was stampeded as well, after being pulled under the wedding
carriage. Though the wedding was over, the curse continued. Princess Maria and Prince Amedeo didn’t
even make it to their ten-year anniversary, as Maria died at the ripe young age of 29,
due to complications in childbirth.

  4. To be fair here, the term "innocent" as in relation with the party who discovered and excavated Tutanchamun's grave, could be misplaced because viewed from the point of the ancient Egyptian priests who placed the curse on the burial ground of their late pharao, as very common in ancient Egypt, those men were far from innocent.
