    Has America ever had a President without German ancestry, other than a few of the first Presidents who were all Englishmen?

    I feel like only Americans care about ethnicity/ancestry. It seems like in Europe, nationality matters more.

    Worth to point out that all European monarchs are descendants of other European houses, making them having german ancestry pretty much inevitable.

    Includes distant ancestors, Austrians, Swiss Germans and Jewish Germans.

    Here’s a list of current heads of state: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_current_heads_of_state_and_government

    Nevermind. This is what happens when attempting to post way past your bedtime.

    ~~Papua New Guinea’s PM having German ancestry is a surprise.~~

    ~~Does this have something to do with them once being a German colony before WWI? I’m guessing all those dots in the Pacific is also precisely for that reason? Where the PMs and Presidents are descended from German colonists who lived there.~~

    ~~Related useless trivia: After Japan took over Germany’s colonies in the north Pacific, many islanders adopted Japanese surnames via intermarriages, and they still use them even after the Japanese have long surrendered.~~

    So the channel islands are filled in, but not the Falklands, st Helena or Gibraltar? Is that a mistake or is the British queen not the head of state in these regions?

    Now do one for British ancestry. You’d get some interesting ones like Botswana and Jordan

    Almost all white Americans have a little German in them, no?

    For Canada are you going with Queen Liz or David Johnson? Or Julie Payette? Because the only way the map makes sense is with the Queen but I’d count David Johnson at the moment and I believe his ancestry is all British Isles.

    What? Merkel has German ancestry?

    TIL Pedro Pablo Kuczynski has German descent.

    > Maxime Kuczyński was born near the today Polish city of Poznan, then in the Province of Posen within the German Empire, as the son of Emma (Schlesinger) and Louis Kuczyński, a family of Jewish origin. The family moved to Berlin shortly after his birth.

    The only thing I know is that Bachelet lived in Germany. Where do you get she is Geman?

    Is the Icelandic president not of German ancestry? Why are the Scandinavian monarchs of German ancestry? Last time I knew, Icelanders were a mix of Nordic vikings and Celts (with a hint of Germanic and Anglo-Saxons)

    How is Lars Løkke Rasmussen (Denmark) of German ancestry? What’s the source of this?

    EDIT: You used Margrethe II as head of state… oké

    I think it would be interesting if someone did this, but with Germanic instead of German.

    Holy shit, you mean to tell me that Germany’s leader is German?! Mind blown!

    Seriously, cool map.

    Isreal shouldn’t be colored red, Ashkenazi Jews are a different ethnic group from Germans.
