My father's I2 genetic father line is Old World European. It originated 65,000 years ago along the Indus River (known as Sindhu in Sanskrit), which flows from Tibet through the Himalayas, Pakistan, and Northwest India.
By about 50,000 years ago, the I2 genetic group is found around the Danube River, in the Balkans (which includes the areas now known as Romania and Transylvania, where the largest concentration of I2, the lineage of the Dragon, still exists today). Following the Last Glacial Maximum, around 17,000 years ago, I2 migrated up the Danube River into the Black Forest of Germany.
By around 12,000 years ago, I2 had migrated into Northwestern Europe. Between 11,500 to 9300 years ago, I2 inhabited the prehistorical region known as Doggerland (covering all regions surrounding the North Sea, including Southern Scandinavia, and European Northwestern Atlantic lands, including the Isles of Britain and Ireland). Following the post-glacial floods which submerged a large portion of Greater Doggerland, my father's Northwestern European I2 genetic branch occupied areas of Frisia, Jutland, Northern Germany and Southern Sweden - areas collectively known as the tribal lands of the Ingvaeones.
Taking all of this together, my paternal genetic father line is Old World European Germanic, but it is not Nordic (in the sense of those commonly referring to the I1 genetic lineage, a brother lineage which split from I2 about 40,000 years ago). I2 is Danubian, of the People of Danu, the Tuatha De' Danann, also known as both Children of the Goddess Danu and the Dragon Lords of Anu (Danu).
The IJK genetic macro-lineage, ancestral to I1, I2 and R1 (a lineage descending downstream from K), is thought to have arisen in the Northern Iranian Plateau between 65,000 to 55,000 years ago. Both I1 and I2 (the greater I haplogroup) split from the common lineage from which R1 is also descended around 50,000 years ago, with I1 and I2 both (the greater I haplogroup) migrating to and inhabiting the Balkans (Danube River regions), while the lineage ancestral to R1 may have remained predominantly in the North Iranian Plateau (then moving up into the Eurasian Steppes).
I1 is thought to have originated in early Neolithic Western Hungary, where the earliest attested genetic Y-DNA evidence of I1 is found. A Neolithic dispersal of I1 from Hungary (through Northern Germany) into Scandinavia occurred between 4000 to 2700 BCE.
The oldest (11,000 to 5000 BCE) attested genetic Y-DNA evidence of post-glacial resettlement in Scandinavia belongs to I2, my father's genetic group (with old world roots in Romania and Transylvania). So, while I2 is not Nordic (with old world roots in Western Hungary), I2 is the indigenous post-glacial male lineage of Scandinavia. Both I1 and I2 have Viking lineages - I1 predominantly in Norway and I2 predominantly in Sweden and Denmark (on the Jutland Peninsula).
Both I1 (Hungarian / Northern Germanic / Scandinavian / Nordic) and I2 (Romanian / North Sea Doggerland / Scandinavian / Northern Germanic) have close old world Danubian roots. The Dragon is historically emblematic of both I1 and I2 male genetic lineages. I suggest that the genetic House of the Dragon (to which Prince Vlad of Wallachia-Romania, famously known as Dracula, also belongs) is at least as old as the common I-lineage shared by both I1 and I2. The Dragon Bloodline is Danubian, rooted in the greater I-haplogroup, where the I1 Clan concentrated in Hungary and the I2 Clan concentrated in Romania/Transylvania.
Hail the Dragon Lords of Anu!
While there are many layers of meaning surrounding Hugin and Munin (the two ravens of Odin/Wodan), one possible layer of meaning suggests the common ancestral origin of the I1 and I2 male lineages in the I macro-haplogroup, where the ravens folklorically attest to the close brotherly relationship of I1 and I2. Frith existed between the clans of I1 and I2. The I1 Clan prehistorically concentrated around the Danube in Hungary, while the I2 Clan prehistorically concentrated around the Danube in Romania. Both I1 and I2 migrated to Scandinavia. I2 migrated there between 11,000 to 5000 BCE. I1 then joined I2 in Scandinavia, migrating there between 4000 to 2700 BCE. I1 and I2 are both sons of the Black Dragon Dinosaur, the frith of their brotherly relationship represented by the Ravens.
