17. King Akhenaten: Was Egypt Ruled By A Half-Alien Half-Human Pharaoh?

King Akhenaten has an absolutely buck wild history! Any art depicting him looks drastically different than other Pharaohs, with a bulbous head, spindly arms, and overall alien-esque appearance. And after he died, any mention of him was scratched out of Egyptian history almost like ancient Egyptians were trying to cover something up...

SPOILERS: They were. But it's not what you think.
