    Half of Europeans Share Tutankhamun's DNA

    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 centre, 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 Centre.

    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.

    So, the pharaohs were Aryan. This squares with quite a few other things.

    We already knew this. Egyptian civilization was built by the Caucasian race. It's no secret. It's no misunderstanding of history. When the negroes saw Egypt and its beauty, they swarmed it and then the great Egyptian civilization died.

    "When a race which produces original thought breeds with a race which produces little or no original thought, the resulting breed is a failure." --Richard Kelly Hoskins.

    If only the Egyptians knew. Perhaps they would still be around today.

    I wonder, how much of them were still left when the arab muslim expansion swept over North Africa? Were most of them already diluted due to the nubian slaves they used, or were they only displaced by later migratory movements? What about the Copts for example?

    I just assumed through centuries of diluting their blood with Negroes and even Semites, and through migratory periods, eventually what we would know to be an "Egyptian" was completely loss.

    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.

    The article mentioned, but naturally did not elaborate, on a very important point. Less than 1% of modern Egyptians belong to this haplogroup, which, as mentioned, is very common throughout Europe. This is evidence that ancient Egypt, particularly the ruling class, was racially caucasian, and these Europids were driven out/exterminated as miscegenation in all levels of Egyptian society became more commonplace. It is no coincidence that this racial decline in Egypt corresponded with its downfall as the dominant power of its time. It would be interesting to see what had a more deleterious impact on the indigenous population; the Arab migration or the absorption of Nubians and other more negroid types.

    And here we must also mention the Arabs; at first a conquering people, but then, as they cast the nets for their harems further and further away, they too abated and stopped being a problem. And from genetic studies we know that the modern Arabs have relatively high degrees of Negro admixture.

    I would like to see a before-and-after genetic study for the Turks as well since I suspect that their harem recruiters went a little too far out in the field too.

    This is, I guess, the real danger with polygamous marriage. It really creates a fertile ground for race mixing, esp. in an economically and politically dominant culture. So we should thank providence that we do not have it.

    We don't know Tut's entire genetic makeup so we can't really say that he was white but it does show that whites played a part in ancient Egypt.
