    Retracing Agnes of Antioch's mtDNA lineage (haplogroup H1)

    Olasz et al. (2018) tested the DNA of King Bela III of Hungary. They also tested the mtDNA lineage of his wife, Agnes of Antioch, which was identified as H1 (either H1j8 or H1bz). We can trace her mtDNA through her matrilineal ancestors, then go down again on the daughter lines.

    - Constance of Antioch (1128–1163)
    -- Alice of Jerusalem (c. 1110 - after 1136)
    --- Morphia of Melitene (died c. 1126 or 1127) => Armenian origins
