R1b1a2 cannot possibly be the Y-DNA of Amenhotep IV, III, and the rest of the male line back to the Theban dynasty founder. This Y-haplogroup is virtually non-existent in Egypt and everywhere else in Africa. It is a European haplogroup and if that is Tut's Y-DNA haplogroup, not saying it is, but if it is then his father was almost certainly the Hittite prince.

    Tory: "The maternal DNA, not the Y-DNA, establishes that Tut was related to the members of Akhenaton's family." Well, no--it was autosomal DNA that connected Tut to the rest of his family. Autosomal... more

          Tut does not just have one grandfather. Every human being as two grandfathers, a paternal and a maternal one. The autosomal DNA results make Amenhotep III the maternal grandfather of Tut, not his... more

            And, by the way, just go here and you'll find an entire chart of where the haplogroup in question can be found in Africa and to what degree. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haplogroup_R1b

              You know, though, I think the 18th Dynasty royals have some unknown story connected to their DNA and, if someone had time and the right program, they might be able to figure out what the story was. I ... more

      Off-topic: I have made a claim with Tut that he appears in Greek Mythology. The son of the sun(Aten). The son of Tithonus(Tutankh). He falls off his chariot and drowns in the Nile. He's mourned by... more
