Pharaoh Akhenaten was a hybrid of aliens?

Pharaoh Akhenaten

Who or what may have pushed an ancient Egyptian pharaoh, 1374 years before Christ, to abandon the traditional Amon cult, transfer the capital from Thebes to Amarna, reign in it with one of the most beautiful women of antiquity at his side, queen Nefertiti, and then disown her five years before dying but keeping her at his court?

Akhenaten, mysterious figure

Amenhotep IV i.e. Akhenaten, presumed father of Tutankhamun (perhaps from the second bride, the favorite, Kiya, in turn, repudiated from the pharaoh a year before Nefertiti) is one of the most important yet mysterious figures in the history of ancient Egypt.

So much mysterious, also because of the destruction of documents and monuments dedicated to him, already begun with the reign of his son with the intention of removing his memory, that some people say of possible extraterrestrial manipulation.

Basically according to this theory Akhenaten, son of Amenhotep III, would have been an alien hybrid, or rather he would have been genetically manipulated by ancient alien visitors: is this possible?

The profile of the pharaoh Akhenaten

Tutankhamun wanted to remove his memory

For sure Akhenaten had thin legs and arms, large basin and an elongated skull: at least these were the most striking features of the few representations of Akhenaten that reached us.

His mummy has been identified, along with that of his wife, Queen Nefertiti (who for some would have reigned after him as Neferneferuaton before the ascension to the throne of Tutankhamun), only in 2009 among the “anonymous” mummies found in 1890 in the tomb of Amenhotep II.

His characteristics were quite different from the pharaohs who had preceded him and instead similar to those found partly in his child Tutankhamun.

Was heretic pharaoh an alien?

But to give a further impulse to the hypothesis of an at least partly alien origin of the “heretic” pharaoh was also a study conducted a few years ago by a team lead by Stuart Fleischmann, Assistant Professor of Comparative Genomics at the Swiss University in Cairo (you can find the summary of the study presented in May 2008 at 14th Conference of Historical Clinicopathology at Davidge Hall here).

Fleischmann and his team studied 9 samples of DNA from Egyptian pharaohs and just what is presumed to belong to Akhenaten presented an abnormal prevalence of the CXPAC5 gene. Could it be the proof of a genetic manipulation occurred 2,400 years ago?

In Akhenaten's gene the traces of a mutation

Normally this gene expands with two processes: extreme aging or an extreme mutation. But Amenhotep IV / Akhenaten should have lived no more than 45-50 years, which would leave room only for the second hypothesis, but opening a second and even more disturbing question: who could approach the pharaoh to perform genetic experiments (perhaps during a dressing) on him?

Could it be connected to the removal first of the favorite Kiya then of Nefertiti, women with beauty perhaps even too perfect for the era in which they lived? Had Pharaoh been conditioned and therefore started his theological and political revolution?

Many questions, few answers, as always. Yet the mystery is so fascinating that there is no doubt that further studies will be undertaken to try to answer these questions and thus shed light on who they really were Amenhotep IV / Akhenaten and his queens.
