50% W. Europe Men from “One King”

Around 50 percent of all men in Western Europe are descendants of one Bronze Age “king” who generated much of the nobility class which spread throughout Europe, a new genetic study has claimed.

The study, published in the Nature Genetics journal, analyzed the sequences of 1,244 human male Y chromosomes drawn from the 1000 Genomes Project.


According to the study, this “super progenitor” lived around 4,000 years ago, and was probably one of the earliest leading kings of early Europe.

Although it is not known who he was, or where he lived, the study says he certainly existed because of the genetic evidence which still can be seen in present-day European populations.

One of the study authors, Dr. Chris Tyler-Smith, said that the most “novel and exciting thing” which they had discovered in the study was the “extraordinary explosion in numbers of males at specific times.”

“In Europe there was huge population expansion in just a few generations. Genetics can’t tell us why it happened but we know that a tiny number of elite males were controlling reproduction and dominating the population.

“Half of the Western European population is descended from just one man. We can only speculate as to what happened. The best explanation is that they may have resulted from advances in technology that could be controlled by small groups of men,” he said.

The male Y chromosome is passed from father to son, while the study of the naturally occurring mutations reveal which Y chromosomes are related to each other.

The mutations also reveal how far apart the Y chromosomes are from each other, and to what degree, a fact which allowed researchers to build a family tree.

The research results astounded the study authors, because it showed that there was a massive increase in the number of men carrying a certain type of Y chromosome within just a few generations.

The earliest explosive increase of male numbers occurred 50,000–55,000 years ago, across Asia and Europe, and 15,000 years ago in the Americas.

The study, “Punctuated bursts in human male demography inferred from 1,244 worldwide Y-chromosome sequences,” was published in the April 2016 edition of Nature Genetics.

    Hells bells…. we`ve been stitched up this way before !

  2. Several years ago, much was made of the news that Egypt was allowing DNA samples to be taken from the mummy of King Tut to examine his genetic and racial lineage, among other things. After testing was complete and before a Discovery Channel special on the whole ordeal was to air, it was hastily announced that some of the results would not be made public, among them the racial findings. When the show finally aired, Tut’s race wasn’t discussed but in err, the producers left nearly his entire genetic haplogroup data clearly visible on a backlit x-ray screen in a shot during the opening sequence. The information revealed was more than enough to determine Tut’s race. Several geneticists watching the show ran the analysis and Tut was unquestionably Caucasian. In fact, 50% of all men of European heritage share the same haplogroup markers while less than 1% of those living in Egypt today did. Even more amazing, 70% of men of British heritage carried the same genetic markers. Two independent lab reviews, including one in Sweden, came to the same conclusion. Reuters news service actually reported the story. Of course, it’s been known for decades that the mummies of Tut’s grandfather, mother and other close relatives clearly still have their blonde and red hair. The inhabitants of ancient China were originally Aryans, as were the ancient Brahmans of India who wrote the Bhagavad Gita. The accomplishments and glory of our history through the ages, most of which has been kept from us, is staggering. This story, along with several others published on this site continues to prove the genetic consistency and high degree of commonality among those of European heritage through the ages. Of course this is so, why else would the powers that be, be pushing miscegenation so badly?

  3. judging by todays Western Europeans,the ‘Wimp Self Destruction’ gene took over their whole bodies and they are now heading head- first over the cliff.lemming-like…towards their doom!

  4. I wouldn’t take these things too seriously. There have been plenty of blunders in science, both inadvertent and deliberate. And it’s hard to see how large samples of DNA from people alive three or four or whatever thousand years ago.

    1. No.

      What is being tested for, namely Y chromosome DNA haplotypes – which are as unique as fingerprints – and are passed down through the generations in the same way as surnames are, are pretty unambiguous.

      You know the way how the police can capture murderers 50 years after their crime, due to a preserved saliva sample, and a traffic offence related compulsory DNA test, well, this is very similar.

  5. It is for reasons such as this that all notions of ‘equality’ in the human sphere, whether relating to ‘race’, ‘gender’ or indeed society, must be firmly rejected as being unnatural and not normal.
