Profile: Napoleon Bonaparte

A big thanks to Mara from Kansas for finding the link between Napoleon and Jews.

  1. There is another body of DNA evidence (Napoleon's haplotype) evidence... still it seems far-fetched, and I have also read that his haplotype may be of Phonecian origin, but worth noting whether you subscribe or not...

    Napoleon belonged to haplogroup E1b1b1c1*. This group originated approximately 7.000 years ago at the east coast of the Mediterranean Sea between and Egypt and Turkey. Today this haplogroup can most frequently be found in Israel, the palestinian territories and Libanon. Also 10% of ashkenazi and sephardic Jews belong to that haplogroup.
