The long-awaited analysis of Richard III’s Y-DNA has thrown up an unexpected issue with the royal male line in the Kingdom of England.

As it turns out a false-paternity happend here and only Richard III was haplo G2 while four of the modern relatives were found to belong to Y-haplogroup R1b-U152 (x L2, Z36, Z56, M160, M126 and Z192). Descendents of John of Gaunt.

That could mean that the Plantagenets were R1B - U152.

Very interesting!!

I would have thought there would have been a lot interest in this finding!

Personally, I am U152,L2,Z49,Z142, and Z150/Z12222 positive. Additionally, as a member of the Habsburg project, the moderator has just asked me about whether or not I am DF 90 positive or negative because of my close SNP line up to the Deveau family of France. I have no idea but I will probably test for it unless it has already been tested in my Big Y test.

R1b: L2,Z49,Z142,Z12222+

Return to R1b-U152/S28
