Um ... How should this be possible? Idea Or do you mean a documentation of the Royal Mummies? In this case, there are

Catalogue général des antiquités égyptiennes du Musée du Caire, CG 61051-61100 :

G. Elliot Smith : The Royal Mummies. - Cairo, 1912. - VII, 118 pp., 1 frontispiece., 103 pls.

and

The Theban Royal Mummy Project by William Max Miller, M.A.

a good start.

Greetings, Lutz.

In fact there is a discrepancy at locus D7S820. Akhenaten is a diploid (15,15) one fetus is 10,13 at this locus and the other is 6,15. Regardless of whether KV21A is Ankasemamun one thing is clear: if Akhenaten and Ankasemamun were half siblings by Akhenaten, then they could not BOTH be parents of BOTH fotuses. Yet the Fetuses were both buried there and King Tut was known to have only one wife.

I came up with the "theory" that Ankasemamun was NOT the half sister of Tutankhamen but the result of Nefertiti having an adulterous affair. of course I can't prove it, but it is consistent with the DNA evidence. I use it in my thriller The Moses Legacy:

Your theory has the advantage of originality - and probably makes for a heck of a novel - but it is much simpler to go with the evidence of KV55's age at death and identify him as Smenkhara making Tut and Ankhes first cousins.

The larger fetus from KV62 (KV62F2?) was tested for blood groups in 1979. what were the results?
