I have discovered an interesting story, how the Iberian SNP I-L126 line could be arrived onto the Iberian Peninsula.


See history “6th Century and annexation, Britons” and the map onthe right side.

There are I-M284 on the British Isles and on the Continental Europe, but there are more on the British Isles than on Continental Europe. But where are all I-L126 now, who had one I-M284 ancestor.

I think on the British Isles and on the Iberian Peninsula (= in Spain and perhaps in Portugal). Other I-L126 who are different from the British I-L126 and Iberian I-L126 could be stranded in the “Bretagne” in France. I think there are 3 main lines.

Who carries I-L126? Apparently, we see a lot of British names and in Continental Europe there are only a few Spanish names.

The Spanish onres seem to have origins in Galicia and Extremadura. Ancient Suevi territories. And there is only a genetic difference of 7 by 67 markers between both. See: https://www.familytreedna.com/groups/m223-y-clan/about/results

If they came with the Suevi to the Iberian Peninsula it must be more of them on the Peninsula, like on the British Isles,but it is not. There are a lot of Spanish R but not I-L126 (or I-M284).

I think that when they escaped from the Anglo Saxons, the Spanish I-L126, a Germanic people, went back to their clan, the Suevi, on the Iberian Peninsula.

What are your thoughts on that?
