Yes, there were two male lines through Eve. The two fathers differed in status. Enlil/Shu and Ninurta/Geb descended through the line of Abel (Alulu). Ea/Ptah and Marduk/Re came from Cain (Anu).
We find ourselves still dealing with this issue in Roman times! That is, a leading queen having royal children through multiple kings.
