Mystery mummy with TWO HEADS of princess and crocodile unveiled for first time in century

A MYSTERIOUS mummified body, that hadn’t been seen by the public for over a century, has been uncovered with two heads - one belonging to a crocodile and one to Pharaonic Egyptian princess killed by the creature.

They belonged to an unidentified Ancient Egyptian Princess and the head and body of a crocodile from the River Nile.

The Hurriyet newspaper has documented how it was decided the bodies would be placed together after the princess was killed by a crocodile.

According to reports, people hoped she would be resurrected in the afterlife as a crocodile.

In the mid-1800s under the rule of Ottoman Sultan Abdelaziz, the mummy moved from Egypt to Turkey.

Ever since, the mummy has resided at Topkapi Palace in Istanbul away from the public.

Prior to the move, it was stored at the former residence of the Sultan in the Yildiz Palace.

The body belonged to a human child and Turkish officials recently gave permission to the Hurriyet newspaper to see the mummy.
