It may be possible to confirm family relationships with Robert I by comparing test results with other
carriers of his Y-chromosome or his mother's mitochondrial DNA.
However, there are no known yDNA or mtDNA test-takers in his direct paternal or maternal line.
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Robert I:
Robert I is 20 degrees from Kevin Bacon, 15 degrees from Joseph Broussard, 24 degrees from Helmut Jungschaffer and 20 degrees from Queen Elizabeth II Windsor on our single family tree. Login to find your connection.
