Comparing 18th Egyptian Dynasty with Henwood DNA

I heard that King Tut was of the R1b1b2 haplogroup, and Henwood is almost a perfect Atlantic model of that haplogroup in a test of 12 alleles. I just saw an email with some information. King Tut was a member of the 18th Egyptian Dynasty of 1550-1292 BCE. That's a long time ago, over 3,000 years ago.

DYS 393 390 19 391 385a 385b 439 389-1 392 389-2

R1b1b2 13 23 14 11 11 14 12 13 13 29 our alleles

This looks like a difference of 4 already with only 10 alleles, but there sure are a lot of similarities considering this is comparing dna with someone very far back in time.

Others are questioning the validity of the results given to us. It was more likely that the Egyptian dynasty would have tested as R1a, J1 or J2 and not R1b1b2 which stems from Iberia. The others have been found in the delta region in Egypt.
R1b1b2 has been in Egypt as long or possibly longer than it has been in Iberia.
