The Pharaoh Who Could Have Been Mistaken For A Girl

The pharaoh Akhenaten, who was married to Nefertiti, fathered at least six children. However, the man had hips and breasts. Dr. Irwin Braverman examined images of the pharaoh and believes Akhenaten had familial gynecomastia, a genetic mutation that leads to the overproduction of estrogen. If Egyptologists can confirm which mummy is Akhenaten’s, and if the Egyptian government agrees to a DNA analysis, we’ll know exactly what caused the pharaoh to have such a feminine physique. [AP]
