PewDiePie is a Swedish Internet personality. He is the son of Lotta Kristine Johanna (Hellstrand) and Ulf Christian Kjellberg. He is the partner of Internet personality CutiePieMarzia.

PewDiePie’s patrilineal ancestry can be traced back to his fourth great-grandfather, Jonas Larsson (1 January, 1806 – 18 May, 1850, Västerlanda, Västra Götaland).

PewDiePie’s paternal grandfather was Leif Lennart Kjellberg (the son of Jakob Karl Georg Kjellberg and Göta Henrietta Eriksson). Leif was born in Gamlestaden, Gothenburg. Jakob was the son of Karl Hjalmar Kjellberg and Annie Alida Larsson. Göta was the daughter of John Leonard Eriksson and Elin Charlotta Lundgren.

PewDiePie’s paternal grandmother is Ulla Dahl (the daughter of Hugo Vilhelm, later Wilhelm, Dahl and Anna Holmberg). Ulla was born in Gamlestaden, Gothenburg. Hugo was the son of August Dahl and Paulina Bengtsson. Anna was the daughter of Carl (later Karl) Johansson Holmberg and Ida Maria Andreasdotter.

PewDiePie’s maternal grandfather was Åke Arvid Hellstrand (the son of Arvid Hellstrand and Sally Henrietta Andrén). Åke was born in Göteborgs Vasa. PewDiePie’s great-grandfather Arvid was the son of August Hellstrand and Maria Strand. Sally was the daughter of Oskar Emanuel Andrén and Anna Fredrika Andrietta Winbo. Anna was a foundling, and was later put into the foster care of Andreas Peter Svensson and Johanna Svensdotter. A picture of PewDiePie’s grandfather can be seen here.

    I have found Johanna’s post about her mother: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10152748675767882&set=a.421193467881.201975.730217881&type=3&theater

    One of the Facebook users who commented on her photo called her Birgitta. Therefore, Johanna’s maiden surname is Hellstrand.

    Also, I have found a family picture further supporting the evidence that Johanna’s mother is Birgitta: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=5454130907&set=a.4652690907.6355.722730907&type=3&theater

    Nordic men are so unattractive.

    Actually, the more north you go in Europe the more unattractive the men will look (not the women, btw).

  3. J420 says:

    The Nordic is very obvious, he fits perfectly in any of the Scandinavian countries.

  4. vilgotaan says:

    On the pewdiepie wiki it says he has ancestors from Sweden, Norway, the Netherlands, Germany and Poland.

    Felix’s maternal grandmother is pictured here: https://instagram.com/p/47PBW2nf6n/

    Note: Her name is not Janne because it is Johanna’s uncle on the left side of the picture. Janne is a Swedish masculine name.
