A mummified head identified as that of the French king Henry IV three years ago may not belong to the monarch after all.

A new DNA study throws the original identification into controversy, however. A team led by Jean-Jacques Cassiman of the University of Leuven in Belgium found that DNA recovered from the head does not match that from the House of Bourbon, Henry's lineage.
