Just wondering, would a TMRCA calculation between near R1b1b2s to King Tut
be of any interest?

King Tut I believe was born about 3,356 years ago. If his tested
grandfather had similar Y-DNA, his grandfather would have been born about
3,400 years ago.

If someone suggested one of his nearer matches was U152, I note that back in
2 July 2009, predictions of U152 age "in Continental Europe" was estimated
around 3200 (based on 37 markers less multi copy markers)- 3800 (based on 67
markers less multi copy markers) +/- a margin of error. What is the latest
age estimate for U152?

It would be interesting if FTDNA compared Tut to his nearest living match in
their database using FTDNA TiP, if the programme can handle this selection
of markers to compare, and be stretched to the long time spans.
