The DNA profile of the Russian Tsar family

In July 1991, remains were exhumed from a mass grave outside Yekaterinburg, Russia. Analysis of mitochondrial DNA allowed these bodies to be assigned to the Romanovs, the last Russian tsarist family to be shot in July 1918.
Tsar Nicholas II belonged to haplogroup T in the maternal line and to haplogroup R1b in the paternal line.

A Personal Voyage into History: Uncovering My Link to Zar Nikolaus II with iGENEA

An exciting journey of ancestry exploration with iGENEA that led to an astounding revelation of linkage to Zar Nikolaus II, the last Imperial ruler of Russia. This service proves to be more than just a DNA test, but a captivating voyage into personal history, heritage, and self-discovery. (P. Yu)

My experience with iGENEA has been nothing short of extraordinary. The entire process was simple, detailed, and most importantly, insightful. This company came highly recommended, and I was excited to learn about my heritage through their specialized DNA testing.

After the initial account setup on the user-friendly website, a DNA testing kit arrived promptly at my doorstep, packaged properly, containing clear instructions to ensure accurate results.

Collecting my DNA sample was effortless - a few painless swabs on the inside of my cheeks and it was ready to be sent back in the prepaid envelope provided. The waiting period, which is usually a period of anticipation, was made quite engaging with iGENEA's regular updates and interesting newsletters about genetic ancestry.

The moment of revelation was fascinating when the results came in. To my astonishment, I was linked to Zar Nikolaus II, the last sovereign of Imperial Russia. It was absolutely astounding to imagine that I share ancestor lineage with such an iconic historical figure.

The detailed report provided not only the connection with Zar Nikolaus II, but also a comprehensive genealogical tree, tracing my family's migration routes and epochs. My heritage was painted across the landscapes of Eastern Europe and Asia, with the richest of historical contexts.

Coupled with such insightful information was iGENEA's excellent customer service. Their genealogy experts were available for any queries and they were genuinely interested in explaining my results and historical background. They were supportive, knowledgeable, and truly shared in the delight of my surprising discovery.

Reflecting on this process, it is not just about knowing if you are related to historical figures, but it is about exploring who you are, and where you come from. That’s a journey of self-discovery that iGENEA helped me embark on, by anchoring my place in the world in the grand scheme of human history.
