Check this out:

I ran that haplotype in Whit Athey's Y Haplogroup Predictor and it came out as "R1b" (probably R1b1b2 of some kind).

Dienekes' Blog mentioned this a couple of days ago (but I just saw it today):

Nicholas II, although called a "Romanov", was the y-line descendant of the German-Scandinavian Dukes of Holstein-Gottorp (modern Schleswig-Holstein at the south end of the Jutland Peninsula).

Here is a simple genealogical chart that makes it pretty easy to trace Nicholas' y line:

Ah, but was he U106 or P312? That is the question.

I ran that haplotype in YSearch, adjusting H4 from 12 to 11 because of the conversion. There was an exact match with a man with the surname Godfrey who has 67 markers, including 492=12, and who traces his ancestry to Ireland.

I'm not sure how much that means, but U106 is almost universally 492=13.

Well, about 95% of the time, anyway.

That's why I used the word "almost."
