Ricky Martin is a Puerto Rican singer, actor, and author. He was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico, the son of Enrique Martín Negroni and Nereida Morales. He has Basque, Spanish, Catalan, Corsican, and possibly other, ancestry. Ricky also has Spanish citizenship.

Ricky’s patrilineal ancestry can be traced back to his third great-grandfather, Ramón Martín y Hernández, of San Juan.

Ricky’s paternal grandfather was Enrique Martín y Millán (the son of Enrique Martín y Pabón and Rosaura Millán y Casas). Ricky’s great-grandfather Enrique was the son of Eugenio Martín y Piera and Zoila Pabón y Rivera. Rosaura was the daughter of Clemente Millán y Rodríguez and Juana Margarita Casas.

Ricky’s paternal grandmother was Iraida Negroni y Arizmendi (the daughter of Antonio Francisco Negroni y Rodríguez and Estrella Arizmendi y Quinta). Francisco was the son of Andrés Rutilio Negroni y Lluberas and Dolores Rodríguez y Rodríguez. Estrella was the daughter of Julio Arizmendi y Rodríguez and Lorenza Quinta y García.

Ricky’s Negroni line traces back to his great-great-great-great-grandfather, Antonio Francisco Negroni Mattei, from San Colombano, Corsica, who was a sugar and coffee plantation owner, and was of aristocratic background. Through that line, Ricky is related to Air Force officer and historian Héctor Andrés Negroni.
