    Take a secret

    Hi, friends.

    ~ His tomb and treasures have come to symbolise the Ancient Egyptian civilization, although it looks like King Tut took the secret of his curse to the grave.

    I didn't understand the following sentence. Could you explain it for me?
    ...King Tut took the secret of his curse to the grave.

    It means that King Tut carried the secret with him until he died and did not reveal it to anyone.
