12,000-Year-Old Sumerian King Anunnaki Found Alive?

The body of King Anunnaki was recovered completely intact and being alive. It is believed that he was buried in a state of suspended animation and has been in that state for 12,000 years.

Today, a video that has been posted on Facebook yesterday by a user called Dicky Kriwil Setiawan, featuring purported footage of the ancient Sumerian king Anunnaki being found alive after 12,000 years in a grave.

As we can see from the video below, it appears to be a person with a long beard covered in gold who’s been dead for quite some time. The problem is no one can say for sure this is real. Many people claim that the Sumerian King Anunnaki is at least 12,000 years old.

When it comes to the question of whether or not Anunnaki is alive or dead now we must consider all of the possibilities first before drawing any conclusions about it. The most obvious thing would seem that he himself should have died long ago.

The only way the Sumerian King Anunnaki have survived his own death was somehow through some kind of magic or other supernatural.

In this video, published on Facebook by an online publisher, the body is lying inside a sort of coffin. The corpse has long hair and a long beard, with gold jewelry adorning its neck and head.

The Enlightened Nation, a YouTube channel dedicated to conspiracy theories, posted a video that purports to show evidence of the infamous sleeping Anunnaki. The video description says:

“Real video evidence of the infamous sleeping Anunnaki. The first shown was unearthed by accident and subsequently died of exposure shortly after, the second is still preserved within stasis and is biologically active. These beings are waking up all around the world! Many have already been secretly relocated somewhere else by covert government operations.”

“What is the link to this video! and his hair and face look false. too new to be 4000 years old. The description of the video is pure conspiracy bullshit! anti-masonic and UFO type of shits using sites as Gaia,” said Ixis Investigator, a commenter.

“No info? Just some painted dudes in a box. Trying to spread “truth” but all you did was add more lies,” said MrCoffeeMate, a commenter.

King Anunnaki 12,000 years in suspended animation

After a careful investigation, it seems clear that most of the claims made by this video are false and misleading. There are no official reports available about this finding. Later on, it is claimed the body was found in a primitive form of suspended animation, after 12,000 the body would be dry as wood.

The video that has been making the rounds shows the “body of the Anunnaki king”. The internet is full of claims about how the body was discovered and its origins, but not one single claim can be confirmed and everyone failed to point out sources to support their claims. Obviously, this “body” isn’t really 12,000 years old.

The hoax continued, new photos and a video appeared in which the skin of King Anunnaki appeared to be colored and soft, sensationalizing the story that the king had stayed 12,000 years in suspended animation.

But this is an odd claim for a number of reasons. First of all, in all the photos and videos of real mummies, the skin is leathery and dry. In fact, it’s so dry that it looks like it will crumble at any moment. And no one has ever reported that the skin of a mummy was anything but leathery and dry. So the claim that King Anunnaki’s skin suddenly becomes soft and pliable would be highly unusual if not impossible.

Second, in order to preserve someone in suspended animation for 12,000 years would require some very sophisticated technology that was not available when King Anunnaki died—not even close, not even today.

Third, why didn’t they just leave him out? Why bury him at all? If his people wanted to keep him alive forever, why would they put him underground in a box? That doesn’t seem logical.

The evidence for this is that the beard appears to be longer in some photos than in others. It also looks fake, more like a carnival beard than a real one.

It also seems unlikely that after 12,000 years hair would still be relatively healthy and shiny. It would likely be brittle and discolored from years of exposure to the elements.

How did the hoax originate?

The original story first made news on November 20, 2008, on the website of Payvand, a publisher dedicated to Iranian issues.

“According to a report by the FARS News Agency, the 3,000-year-old cemetery was found during a road construction project, that is located 500 meters from the previously found ancient mound of Zagros. Kurdistans provincial cultural heritage office confirmed that so far five squat burials have been found in the cemetery along with spears, bronze bracelets and earthenware,” reports Payvand.

The hoax was born 7 days later, on November 27, 2008. The article boasts that six corpses were found followed up by a blogger. Nowhere were details published about the findings.

“On November 19, 2008, six corpses were discovered in Kurdistan-Iran. Archeologists believe the corpses were buried some 3000 years ago. The corpses belonged to a king and five of his bodyguards, who were buried around him. According to a myth, they were buried around him to protect their king even in death. As the picture shows, the king was buried with jewelry and his crown. A fish plaque with ancient writings placed on his chest requires a scientific study by unbiased archeologists to come up with an authentic and undistorted translation of the historic message.”

That gives you a little context as to how long this story has been around. Back when it first came out (in 2008), there were no photo or video hoaxes attached to it…just simple text articles making claims that archaeologists had discovered a 12,000-year-old Sumerian king.

There is a true part, they did indeed find a graveyard and it is very well documented.


An Iron Age graveyard, for the most part dating from the 8th – 7th century BC, was accidentally discovered in 2008 during road works near Sanandaj, Iranian Kurdistan. Rescue excavations were conducted by the Cultural Heritage Department in Sanandaj.

They found a variety of pottery vessels and jewelry as well as an iron sword, which is a very important find because it shows that the Iron Age culture had already developed techniques of forging iron weapons.

The graves were also dated with radiocarbon dating, which proved they were from the period when the city was founded as Urartu by King Rusas (8th-7th century BC).

“Reports and press releases began mentioning the discovery of six corpses instead of five and they became a “mummified king and five of his bodyguards This media frenzy was supported by a 36-second video-fragment that was placed on YouTube and various other sites. It is the orchestrated “discovery” of a bearded mummified “king” with a crown, a gem-encrusted gold box, and two gems encrusted “gold” plates with cuneiform inscriptions. One of these was fish-shaped and placed on the chest; the other had the shape of a loincloth with an Achaemenid type spouted jar depicted on the front (apparently copied from the Persepolis reliefs). The forgery was so crude that no professional archaeologist could ever be fooled by it but many others were and unfortunately, such Indiana Jones-style stories are persistent and keep circulating on the web (see e.g. a press release d.d. 11.27.2008: http://www.kurdishaspect.com/doc112708KNC.html cited by e.g. http://archaeonews.blogspot.com/2008/11/embalmed-corpse-of-king-was-discovered.html). It is noteworthy in this context that another famous “Persian mummy” was confiscated in Pakistan a few years earlier, in October 2000, while it was offered for sale on the antiquities market. This forgery had to pass as an Achaemenid princess. Like the “king” she had gold foil sheets with “cuneiform inscriptions”. We have no information on the present whereabouts of the “mummified king” or on whether this was indeed an actual human mummy or rather a wax sculpture or some other kind of creation. We hope this preliminary report may for once and for all put an end to the speculations and conspiracy stories related to this hoax on Sanandaj,” says the document.


12,000-Year-Old Sumerian King Anunnaki Found Alive is a Hoax

If the video is real, it would mean that Sumerian King Anunnaki lived about 12,000 years ago and was found alive today. This is simply impossible since it goes against what we know about the blueprints of human evolution. Implying that the video’s claim that a 12,000-year-old man has been discovered alive goes against scientific knowledge.

Definitely a hoax, wouldnt he not have to have some kind of monitoring device ? And of course after 12,000 year’s it would definitely be out of order. There is not enough evidence put forward for this to be even considered as truth.

Hey Lynn! Thanks for your comment. I really appreciate you reading and engaging with my article.

I agree with you 100%! It’s definitely not true.
