George Edward Stanhope Molyneux Herbert, better known as Lord Carnarvon, was the patron of archaeologist Howard Carter's digs in Egypt.


Indiana Jones met Lord Carnarvon in 1908 during Howard Carter's excavations near the Valley of the Kings.[2]

Just five months after Carter had uncovered the tomb of Tutankhamun in 1922, Carnarvon suddenly died from an infected mosquito bite.[3]


Jones would later think of Carnarvon and Carter in 1936 just after he had returned to Marshall College from Peru, where René Emile Belloq had taken the Chachapoyan Fertility Idol from him.[4]

Behind the scenesEdit

The extent of Lord Carnarvon's place in Indiana Jones canon is ambiguous. He appears as part of the Choose Your Own Adventure book The Valley of the Kings which loosely adapts the first half of Young Indiana Jones and the Curse of the Jackal (My First Adventure) of The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles television series.

The path which mostly faithfully follows the events of the episode includes several differences in the narrative, including Lord Carnarvon's presence at the dig and his involvement in the tomb of the mummy found there which is not the body of the episode's Kha but a minor royal called Amenhotep.
