King Tut Was White: Half of European Men Share His DNA
This is an older article that I felt inclined to post namely due to the fact that most of what is taught to school children is an outright distorted view of history.
King Tut was a white man. This is a major shocker and re-writes most of the historical record, particularly that of Egypt’s.
My theory has always been that the continent of Atlantis was a real place populated by a Nordic, Aryan-like people. Somehow, someway, Atlantis collapsed and its leaders migrated outward carrying special knowledge and abilities with them that would have set them apart as virtual ‘gods’ over many populations that existed outside of Atlantis’ walls.
King Tut was probably of Atlantean origin- as were many of the ‘gods’, kings, and rulers of ancient history.

Reuters— (Reuters) – Up to 70 percent of British men and half of all Western European men are related to the Egyptian Pharaoh Tutankhamun, geneticists in Switzerland said.
Scientists at Zurich-based DNA genealogy center, iGENEA, reconstructed the DNA profile of the boy Pharaoh, who ascended the throne at the age of nine, his father Akhenaten and grandfather Amenhotep III, based on a film that was made for the Discovery Channel.
The results showed that King Tut belonged to a genetic profile group, known as haplogroup R1b1a2, to which more than 50 percent of all men in Western Europe belong, indicating that they share a common ancestor.
Among modern-day Egyptians this haplogroup contingent is below 1 percent, according to iGENEA.
“It was very interesting to discover that he belonged to a genetic group in Europe — there were many possible groups in Egypt that the DNA could have belonged to,” said Roman Scholz, director of the iGENEA Center.
Around 70 percent of Spanish and 60 percent of French men also belong to the genetic group of the Pharaoh who ruled Egypt more than 3,000 years ago.
“We think the common ancestor lived in the Caucasus about 9,500 years ago,” Scholz told Reuters.
It is estimated that the earliest migration of haplogroup R1b1a2 into Europe began with the spread of agriculture in 7,000 BC, according to iGENEA.
However, the geneticists were not sure how Tutankhamun’s paternal lineage came to Egypt from its region of origin.
The center is now using DNA testing to search for the closest living relatives of “King Tut.”
“The offer has only been publicized for three days but we have already seen a lot of interest,” Scholz told Reuters.
