Catalonia is currently in the news as independence from Spain is being spoken about more than ever before.
Spain is not happy, but the people of Catalonia appear convinced that there is no other solution.
This has been an ongoing conflict not too different from the desire many Basques have to rid themselves of the Spanish authority altogether.
There is another similarity between Basque Country, Catalonia and their people:
Catalans have a large percentage of rh negatives amongst them. Not as high as the
Basques, but somewhere around 25%!
Y-DNA Haplogroup R1b is the most frequent among Spaniards and Portuguese, occurring at over 50% throughout most of Spain. R1b is particularly dominant in the Basque Country and Catalonia, occurring at rate of over 80%.
