Merovingian Period Y-DNA: Is it R1b-L21?
The recent y-dna testing of the artefacts of a burial in Ergolding in Bavaria is very interesting. The research can be read in the Croatian Medical Journal found on http://www.cmj.hr/2009/50/3/19480023.htm. The tested bones come from R1b1b2 and G2a. It is believed that some of the remains belong to nobility who were related to the Merovingian Dynasty as the remains are claimed to be from the 7th century AD.
The Wolf Emblem of the Lords of Wolfegg
Some are claiming that the R1b of these Frankish Lords is from R1b-U106 as there are a number of reasonably close matches with those today of this subclade. However others who are R1b-L21 are also just as closely matched. I personally think it is most likely that they are R1b-L21 and closely related to the Carolingian Family whose ancestors fled Persia when the "Seed of David" was under threat of extermination. The other bones who are G2a may have come West with this dynasty as part of their military guard. These G2a warriors are descendants of Kayl Vahan (Vahan the Wolf I)of Armenia and his men. It would seem they settled originally in the area of Wolfegg Castle with the Hesbaye family (the Grail Family) descended from Galahad's son Omer(Aumer) ha Ari of Sarras (Persia).
Two of the six samples 244A and 244B were brothers of R1b1b2 y-dna and 244C a more distant Davidic cousin. 244D while belonging to R1b(most likely R1b-SYR2627) was not closely related on the y-line. 244E and 244F were both G2a but not closely related on the y-dna line.
