There is much more than what is stated. I’ve always thought some Romanian blood and/or least some African heritage (I hate saying that and not being able to specify more accurately, because I can just not beyond the bigger African countries).

Just because someone’s a bit dark that doesn’t mean they would have African ancestry.

Maybe Spanish or Sicilian, yes. I could see that in here. But NOT black.
