below try to summarize most of current hypotheses presented by most
reliable authorities, especially
A.Dodson i D Hilton
"The Complete Royal Families in
Ancient Egypt", London 2004
A.Dodson"Monarchs of the Nile", Cairo 2002.
Continuous lines in tables indicate some or very likely relations, while
dashed lines - uncertain or hypothetical relations. The name of the
ruler, both Egyptian and foreign, is framed. I have described the woman
with the color blue and the High Priests or the Divine Adoratrice of
Amon - color brown.
The New Kingdom is the period from which most mummies of royal families
have survived, enabling them to make genetic tests so important for
establishing correct genealogy. In DNA research carried out on several
mummies in 2010, several conclusions can be drawn, confirming previous
speculations. The dark secrets surrounding Tutankhamun's origins have
somewhat disappeared, although there is still a lack of certainty as to
who his parents were. Paradoxically, we already have their mummies
confirmed by almost 100% probability. As to the names, in the case of
the father, both Akhenaton and Semenkhkare aspire for this name. It is
known that Tutankhamun's mother was a woman whose mummy, referred to in
Egyptology as The Young Lady, was found in the tomb of KV35 in
the Kins Valley. Z.Hawass announced in the media, with the proper
certainty, that Tutankhamun's father was Akhenaten and his mummy was
found in tomb KV55. Personally, I think that this mummy is Semenkhkare,
and DNA tests confirm only two, previously known hypotheses - that
Semenkhkare and Akhenaten, were the sons of Amenhotep III and queen Teje,
and one of them was the father of Tutankhamun. We still do not know the
name of the young king's mother, knowing only that she was the sister of
Semenkhkare and Akhenaten, the daughter of Amenhotep III and Teje.
However, many would point to her being the daughter of Amenhotep III and
Teje - Kiya.
