Who’s your daddy? King Tut’s father identified





Inscribed limestone block suggests boy pharaoh was the child of Akhenaten

"We can now say that Tutankhamun was the child of Akhenaten," Zahi Hawass, chief of Egypt's Supreme Council of Antiquities, told Discovery News.

The finding offers evidence against another leading theory that King Tut was sired by the minor king Smenkhkare.
