Ok last update about this
I sent his bam file to yfull
And i asked them to to take a look at it
They confirmed to me today in emaill that
GLI002 was pre-e-m84 this is inline with theytree site analysis
He wasn't r1b the paper indeed done a mistake
As presenting him as such in there supplementary table 2
So this is the oldest e-m34 in south europe cool:cool-v:
As I always said, Napoleon's e-m34 could have arrived in Italy during the Bronze Age or the Iron Age. I thought then and think now that paper which proposed it was Moorish in origin was rather silly. They based it on the fact that one of his ancestors had the nickname "Il Moro". Apparently, no one ever told them that it is rather common in Italy to give that nickname to someone who is unusually dark. It need have nothing to do with a known Moorish ancestor.
Il Moro, Ludovico Sforza, Duke of Milan, who was descended from a condottiere. That's an ancient Roman nose if ever I saw one. What he lacked in beauty he made up for in intelligence and ambition.
