Pope Paul V - Camillo Borghese and the Artist Caravaggio ... same Family ? Same DNA


"St Jerome" by Caravaggio at the Borghese Gallery in Rome, Italy

















Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio / Camillo Borghese, Pope Paul V

Caravaggio Merisi Y-DNA E1b1b1-a1b 13-24-13-10-16-18-11-12-12-14-11-31
Camillo Borghese Y-DNA E1b1b1-a1b 13-24-13-10-16-18-11-12-12-14-11-31

Pope Paul V (17 September 1552 – 28 January 1621), born Camillo Borghese, was Pope from 16 May 1605 until his death. In Rome the Pope financed the completion of St. Peter's Basilica, and improved the Vatican Library. He restored the Aqua Traiana, an ancient Roman Aqueduct (named after him Acqua Paola), bringing water to the rioni located on right bank of the Tiber (Trastevere and Borgo). He had always encouraged Guido Reni. Like many Popes of the time he was also allegedly guilty of nepotism, and his nephew Scipione Borghese wielded enormous power on his behalf, consolidating the rise of the Borghese family. Paul V also established the Bank of the Holy Spirit in 1605. The Bank of the Holy Spirit (Italian: Il Banco di Santo Spirito) was a bank founded by Pope Paul V on December 13, 1605. The Bank was the first national bank in Europe the first public deposit bank in Rome,and the oldest continuously-operating bank in Rome until its merger in 1992.

Recently it was confirmed that Napoloean Bonaparte belonged to Haplogroup E1b1b1-c1, which is interesting since his sister Pauline married into the Papal & Noble Borghese Family which is also E1b1b1-M35.1. This was a Family alliance that joined 2 of the most powerful families of Europe, consolidating most of the World's Artistic Masterpieces into one family. Many of the great works of Art were moved from Rome and now reside in the Louvre in Paris. Some of the finest works however have remained at the Borghese Gallery in Rome including works by Raphael, Bernini and Caravaggio. The Nephew of Pope Paul V (Camillo Borghese) was Scipione Borghese, who encouraged and collected most of Caravaggio Merisi's work. Interestingly, it has been confirmed that Caravaggio was also E1b1b1-a1b, matching 12 of 12 markers of a branch of the Borghese Family. So there may be more to the Caravaggio-Borghese connection than meets the eye.

Saenz-Borghese : 25 marker match with Spanish Candelario Saenz Family


E1b1b1-a1b : 13-24-13-10-16-18-11-12-12-14-11-31-15-9-9-11-11-26-14-20-34-14-16-17-17

This is the closest match to my E1b1b1-M35.1 DNA so far ... a Spanish Family called "Saenz" .... This is what I learned.

Sáënz (pronounced sigh-nz) is a Spanish surname originating in The Kingdom of Spain in the Castile region, now known as La Rioja derived from its unknown original Semitic (Hebrew) surname.
Spelling variations of this family name include: Saens, Saenz, Sans, Sanx, Sanz, Sainz, Saiz, Saez, and many more.

History : via Wikipedia

Created by Sephardic Jews (Semitic families) who immigrated into the region, some via the Way of St. James, due to religious conflicts in their native lands using this name as a way of assimilating into their new country of settlement.
Integrating with Spain's native people, the name became common in this territory. Later in 1478, due to the Alhambra Decree, many Saenz family members that retained forms of Judaic faiths were forced to migrate to new lands.
Several Spanish Jews living in Spain, so-called Conversos or Marranos, changed their faith to Catholicism to avoid Catholic persecution for having their original faith be Judaism. These Jews were forced to adopt Spanish names to live in Spain after conversion, using Spanish names to "prove" to authorities that their conversion was "true" (see Religious conversion).
This was common place in dark-age times, both in Spain and Portugal, where Jews adopted tree names in Portuguese, like "Oliveira" ( olive tree ), "Pereira" ( pear tree ), "Salgueiro" ( willow tree), "Figueira" ( fig tree ), etc. In Portugal, these Jews were called "Cristãos-Novos" ( new Christians ). The Saenz coat of arms denotes a tree in line with this Jewish aspect, as well as two similar fruits on either side of the tree and opposing lions on the latter half of the shield, depicting duality involved in the root of the name.
Due to the Law of the Pure Blood some families hid their previous Jewish background from outsiders but practiced the traditions in secret through the generations. Some of this was done by conversing with close family members in the Judaeo-Spanish language, lighting candles on Friday evenings,and eating only kosher foods such as Pan de Semita. Over time the purpose of these traditions were lost but were still carried on due to being thought of as family tradition in itself.

Are we all connected ?

"A human being is part of a whole, called by us the Universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separated from the rest a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.” - Albert Einstein .... “Time is not at all what it seems. It does not flow in only one direction, and the futre exists simultaneously with the past.”

Do you have Genius-Inventor DNA ? Einstein-Wright












Albert Einstein / Orville Wright / Wilbur Wright

Albert Einstein 14-24-13-10-15-18-11-12-11-12-11-31
Wright Brothers 13-24-13-10-16-18-11-12-12-13-11-29

It is quite extraordinary that the Einstein and Wright families share similar Y-DNA and actually belong to the same Haplogroup E1b1b1-M35.1 As we acquire more DNA samples the list of people who belong to this Haplogroup grows and there are others of extraordinary talent including Caravaggio, St Augustine, Sir David Attenborough, William Harvey and many more. Some of these discoveries are quite unique in that they may reveal familial connections that were meant to be hidden.

Recently it was confirmed that Napoloean Bonaparte belonged to Haplogroup E1b1b1-c1, which is interesting since his sister Pauline married into the Papal & Noble Borghese Family which is also E1b1b1-M35.1. This was a Family alliance that joined 2 of the most powerful families of Europe, consolidating most of the World's Artistic Masterpieces into one family. Many of the great works of Art were moved from Rome and now reside in the Louvre. Some of the finest works however have remained at the Borghese Gallery in Rome including works by Raphael, Bernini and Caravaggio. Now here is an interesting twist. The Nephew of Pope Paul V (Camillo Borghese) was Scipione Borghese, who encouraged and collected most of Caravaggio Merisi's work. Interestingly, it has been confirmed that Caravaggio was also E1b1b1-a1b, matching 12 of 12 markers of a branch of the Borghese Family. So there may be more to the Caravaggio-Borghese connection than meets the eye.
