If HQ593807 belongs to the same haplogroup for A11069G I’d say that the origin is probably in Italy.
It's possible that they could have each had one CR mutation during the last several hundred or few thousand years. Given the large number of shared CR mutations, I'd guess that they probably share a common maternal sometime within the last few thousand years. Just a funny coincidence about the names both spelled "Margareta".
I'd like to see much more than two samples from Italy before concluding that this group originated there, but it is certainly a possibility.
