Descendants Of Inca Royalty Walk Among Us

Studies of modern populations have revealed common Y-DNA origins (and diverse mtDNA origins) among the descendants of Inca royal families.

This is reminiscent of the Genghis Khan genes found in places once ruled by the Mongol Empire (whose fall was reasonably close in time to that of the Inca Empire on historical genetics time scales) and of the genetic traces of the Aaronic priesthood in the Jewish diaspora (which is about four or five times as remote in history).

Whole-sequence analysis indicates that the Y chromosome C2*-Star Cluster traces back to ordinary Mongols, rather than Genghis Khan -
