Genetic legacy of Hungarian royal lineage identified
Hungarian-Croatian International Studies, led by the Hungarian Institute, decision Genetic ancestry of Hunyadi royal descendants according to archaeological studies.
An archaeological survey of the Hunyadi family began in 2020, followed by consultations with Bishop Varazdin, and the Croatian Repoglava tomb, the burial place of Matthias Hunyadi’s son János Corvin (1473-1504). opened. and his grandson Christopher Corvinus (Christoph Corvin, 1499-1505).
Staff at the Hungarian Institute successfully carried out DNA isolation during sampling under extreme conditions, and the radiocarbon dating carried out confirmed the archaeological and historical data, they said. rice field.
They used next-generation sequencing to sequence the complete genomes of the remains of buried individuals, showing that both are widely distributed in Eurasia. They reported that the genetic relationship between father and son was confirmed using both classical methods and whole-genome data.
Studies have shown that Corvins have an ancient European genome composition, with the highest genetic similarity to European Neolithic samples from the Carpathian Basin and the Neolithic and Chalcolithic ages of ancient Hungary. I have(mid-5th to 3rd millennium BC) sample.
