    Best answer: Well technically it was the kingdom of Aragon that controlled parts of Italy. Both Spain and Italy were made up of separate kingdoms at that time. Spain became unified around the time of Columbus when the King of Aragon married the queen of Castille. Italy didnt become unified until much later. The Spanish and... show more
    Best answer: Well technically it was the kingdom of Aragon that controlled parts of Italy. Both Spain and Italy were made up of separate kingdoms at that time. Spain became unified around the time of Columbus when the King of Aragon married the queen of Castille. Italy didnt become unified until much later.

    The Spanish and Italians are already ethnically and culturally similar. They're both Mediterranean Southern Europeans and they share similar languages and ancient history, so it's not like having Spanish DNA really changes existing Italian DNA that much.

    There are Italians with Spanish DNA and Spaniards with Italian DNA. Some of it certainly dates back to Spain's occupation of southern Italy and Sicily. Others are the result of more recent circumstances.

    That being said, the Spanish probably left their biggest impression on Sicily where the Spanish influence on the language is the most obvious. There are rural mountainous areas in Sicily where the dialect is a mix if Sicilian and Spanish.

  • Is it possible that I might be part Italian?

    Best answer: Certainly it is possible, not only given the close proximity but given that much of the Dalmatian coast belonged to the Venetian Empire for centuries. Not that the Venetians during that period would have thought of themselves as "Italian", or felt any special connection with people from the south or west... show more

  • What is the story with the English, are they the same as us Irish and Scots?

    Didn't we all mostly apart from the Saxons and Norman influences, just originate from the Celts?.

    Didn't we all mostly apart from the Saxons and Norman influences, just originate from the Celts?. From what I've learned so far, the Welsh claim they are the native Britons, the Scots were made up of Picts but nobody is really sure where they came from, Black sea area or Scandinavia, who knows?, then you had the Britons in the lowlands there and the Saxons and the Gaels to the west in Dal Riata right?. There were two waves of Britons one to Ireland and one to England yeah?, both from slightly different places?. Aren't we all just Celts?; after all Boadicea was from London. So it sometimes confuses me as to what all the fighting was about

  • Tips for finding a person- I only know their date of death?

    Best answer: That will depend on the country they died in and when they died, as most records that are created during the persons lifetime are not available for people to research for under 70 yrs old, some countries have indexes although as it is an index it is very limited, the record the index is associated to you would have... show more
    Best answer: That will depend on the country they died in and when they died, as most records that are created during the persons lifetime are not available for people to research for under 70 yrs old, some countries have indexes although as it is an index it is very limited, the record the index is associated to you would have to purchase a copy 'if' you are allowed to as many countries only allow next of kin to apply and pay for a copy...so lets say if this person was young, died in that last 10 yrs, their records really are not available for you to see, so will not be on online databases

  • Where can I find more information about a Polish knight Nieprosz (Nieprosław) Godzimirowic (Godzimirowicz)?

    Died circa 12th century. An old book I have seems to suggest our surname comes from a coat of arms given to him by a king. However the book is in Polish and I can't understand more than 10 percent of it max. Anything I can use? This is related to old Eastern European nobility.
